Skymap (completed)

 SKYMAP is a recently completed circuitry chest in a free-form design, 17" x 13" x 6"H.  It somehow reminded me of a chart of the constellations, hence the title.  Since it's a lot less trouble to upload images to the blog rather than my website (which requires my webmaster), I probably will upload selected works to the website only periodically.  If any of the images are not of sufficient resolution, better image files can be emailed on request.                                                  

As with all of the chests, the hardware is minimized so there is no visual distraction from the graphics of the circuitry.  On the interior the hinges are buried beneath the circuitry material, and the lid-stay is simply a blackened strand of guitar string.  The view of the back shows that the butts of the hinges are nearly invisible.
