The purpose of this model is to illustrate how possible interpretations of an artefact such as a line drawing are shaped by the dependencies that exist between the observables associated with them, as encountered through interaction. The model is recorded in a single small file. This file comprises two very simple DoNaLD scripts which in effect represent two independent simple models. One represents a digit from an led display, the other depicts the floorplan of a filing cabinet with a drawer that can be opened or closed. The states of the two models are originally such that they are identical: both resemble a figure 8 line drawing. The models can be distinguished through simple redefinitions.
