What a Lectern is For
A drafting compass marks space and keeps time as the hobby helper comes alive atop the lectern to investigate a cicada wing. A pair of Scottish terriers race around the circumference of the magnifying glass stopping history and attracting the hungry attention of a cicada husk which climbs the helper to give chase. The terriers are only a kind of natural bait. My eyesight is going. The cicada husk chases the Scotty dogs ‘round and ‘round. The procession is fanned by the cicada wing. The cicada husk is captured by one of the hobby helper’s claws. This is a pattern. From within the depth of the “Dictionary of Angels” a syringe appears and is filled red with a secret knowledge of angels. The hobby helper injects the cicada husk with the contents of the syringe as the Scotty dogs retreat back into the dictionary. A system of Liliths is shown. The hobby helper shows us its prize.
The cat observes from afar.

This is both an homage to the Brother’s Quay and a stop motion experiment.
