Thanks Elaine,

Quite interesting, really! You are very clear about the function of
these two disciplines in your life. How do you consider the work of
other artists, artists that participate in a larger social and cultural
arena? Also, do you imagine that art in this larger cultural social
arena is without rules? Also, I'm interested in that you describe both
art and engineering within the context of your failures. Any further
thoughts about that?
