The artistic benifit of working in the Open Circle group was the production of works with writers
and composers  which  we called Interaction. In 1989  Adrian  Finnerty, John Maxwell Geddes,
Ewan MacVicar and myself  mounted an  exhibition at  the  Step Gallery, Edinburgh as part of
the Festival of Science and  Technology.   Most of  the works here  had  their beginnings in our 
work for this exhibition.     The Interaction method was for one creator to take a work in another 
discipline and produce a work to it.     The resulting production being exhibited together. Often 
I took works  that  had  been  created  to  my  paintings  and  combined these into a new work.
Thus works were produced serially over a number of years.
