Daphnis & Chloe
Everything needs a name long before a title is decided: folders for notes & plans, trays with selected circuitry, photo files, etc. My working title for this piece was “Buttheads” (which just popped in my head as soon as those top circuits were placed together), but I didn’t want to refer to a TV cartoon from some years ago. And it was hard not to notice that one of the circuits was male and the other female. So in a moment of whimsy I picked the classical lovers DAPHNIS & CHLOE ; Daphnis is on the right, with the penis sticking up from the back of his neck. Never mind that the circuitry isn’t a bit gentle and romantic. It’s a machine, after all.
