In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

COLOR PLATE A Color Plate A No.1 Steve Mann. A mid-1980s embodiment of Steve Mann's WearComp4jWearCam4 invention, with recently updated antennae and camera with zoom lens. The signal processing and communications systems were sewn into the black jacket (1985). Additional computational capability was facilitated by the optional backpack-based computer. The computer screen took the form of a cathode-ray tube (CRT), facing downward into a beam splitter over the left eye. The beam splitter caused the information on the computer screen to appear overlaid on top of normal visual reality. The skull cap, made of copper, provided both safety with respect to the 2200 volts present on the CRT, as well as a ground plane for the two antennae situated thereon. The short antenna was a transmitter and the long antenna a receiver, to facilitate full-duplex, first-person videoconferencing. The additional antenna emanating from the backpack facilitated data and voice communications. (See Artist's Article by Steve Mann.) COLOR PLATE B Color Plate B No.1 Andrea Polli, Fetish, installation at the CommandShift ·Ctrl show, NAME Gallery, Chicago, 1996. The artist placed objects above the heads of visitors to force them to look up, evoking the physical action common when thinking or remembering. Each object was lit with a spotlight that created exaggerated shadows on the walls of the space. The shadows act like foggy reproductions of the actual objects, much like memories act in relation to actual events.

The color code used in L-Willustrations assigns fixed colors to body parts (and also to the strips into which the stage is divided). In this way the reader can identify more readily which part of the body (or of the stage) each sign in the score corresponds to and which position it represents.
