Elizabeth Vander Zaag began working with computers very early in her career. For “Digit”, she made a series of early digital animations, manipulating the hardware of early computers to create a series of episodes about a female digital protagonist. Often playing on the humorous, Vander Zaag is one of two artists behind the site cougerdate.com, see: cougardate.com/cougar/default.html

The “Digit Logic Lecture” is an unanimated episode of the “Digit” series, recorded on a week when Vander Zaag was unable to access the computer to create a new work.
