Elizabeth's seeming really vexed and embarrassed.
Her acquaintance was at least as much embarrassed as herself.
She had resolved to be perfectly easy
A resolution.
"I know my own strength, and I shall never be embarrassed again"
"But I was embarrassed."

a guess at how the BOX performance works
View analysis of BOX.md

A quick and dirty technology dissection of BOX

The installation/performance in question: http://www.botndolly.com/box .

Bot and Dolly (the firm behind this performance/installation) will will apparently release a post-mortem at some point but here's a quick dissection of the tech.

A big part of this performance is video/projection mapping (mapping animations and graphics to physical objects that aren't necessarily a screen).

MadMapper (http://www.madmapper.com/) seems to be the app of choice to getting started with projection mapping really quickly is (it's expensive tho).
