Artist's Note

Artist's statement about this piece: Most embarrassing moment of the conference: While Beth was performing, she said a key word or password which inadvertently triggered my device to turn on Siri and prompting the computer to ask what I wanted and interrupted Beth mid-sentence. She asked what happened, and I blurted that my computer heckled her, or something to that effect. I wanted Siri to help me crawl into a hole. I apologized later, and I took my time executing her drawing to make up for the horrible distraction I created. I THINK all is forgiven, and Beth is happy with the drawing.
