I work in digital imaging ... speed seems an inherent part of
this/these media. Even so, but some works take the time a graphite
rendering or stippled piece might demand too. the term"object" is
being stretched by net-based and multimedia works ... but each
work takes the time it does. I too wonder if anything is ever
really "finished"
