From Drawing to Computing and Back Again
    Angela Eames

    Being is not unlike drawing - drawing exists.
    Drawing is not unlike painting - painting involves uncertainty.
    Painting is not unlike running - running can be transcendent.
    Running is not unlike working - working allows for strategy.
    Working is not unlike programming - programming favours reason.
    Programming is not unlike thinking - thinking is not static.
    Thinking is not unlike drawing - drawing is being.
