Beautiful Light Box

The lightbox that features in the time-lapse video is over a quarter of a century old and still being used by Linda on a regular basis. Originally it was  homemade and donated to an art class in a school in Yorkshire where Linda's brother was teaching English. The equipment in the art room was eventually updated and the lightbox was about to be thrown out. Luckily Linda's brother was on hand save it from the scrap heap and it's been with Linda ever since.

There's something to be said of the mark of the hand. It adds a depth, warmth and soul to a project, an organic connection between the artist and the medium.


In the twenty five years of this light box's existence, nothing has changed, no software updates!! All you need is a little electricity and an idea and off you go.
