Hello, are you there? It’s me, Thea.
My niece kissed me all of sudden while squeezing my face. It was an amazing feeling. I thought, there’s really some special kind of joy in having a kid, a family. And she smiled so sweetly, it was heart-warming.
Do you remember when we talked about moving out of here, and starting a life together and having four kids before we’re 38? My very first thought when I decided I wanted to take care of you (and not necessarily having a family) always flashes back to me - you were coming from a meeting, looking all stressed, unruly hair, disheveled shirt, and you were managing to look pitiful but I saw some smile in your eyes, and I said to myself, “yes, I’ll take care of you, and make you smile most of the time, for the rest of our lives.”
From then on, it was a roller coaster ride. I was crazy and you were mad. And now, I just wish I can finally stop missing you, even for a while.

The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. The book’s intended function has decreased and the form remains linear in a non-linear world. By altering physical forms of information and shifting preconceived functions, new and unexpected roles emerge. This is the area I currently operate in. Through meticulous excavation or concise alteration I edit or dissect communicative objects or systems such as books, maps, tapes and other media. The medium’s role transforms. Its content is recontextualized and new meanings or interpretations emerge.
Famous for its scenery, cinematography, and near complete lack of special effects (almost exclusively used simply to remove bystanders from shots), The Fall was filmed over a period of four years in over twenty countries, including India, Namibia, South Africa, Italy, and Indonesia. One review said, “See it for no other reason than because it exists. There will never be another like it.”
