Handmade edition of 60 numbered and signed by Judy Millar.
Millar write about this print _"Being an artist fascinated by the possibility art has to bypass or extend normal interpretative brain function, I was intrigued to learn how [cochlear] implants work by directly stimulating auditory nerves rather than through the amplification of worldly sounds. Soundless hearing becomes something akin to abstract thinking or direct communication without the use of symbol of figure. Working with the printers an image has come about from the process of printing itself - very simple overlays of line and colour setting up possibilities of seeing. Perhaps a beating heart, perhaps a new ear, perhaps nothing of the kind?"
