Two artists sit opposite each other and form an unspoken connection.

 

Periodically they write their thoughts on cards, and stack them on top of each other.

 

After an hour, the narrative is woven together in order for all to read,

 

uncovering a sequence of not-known connections.

 

 

THE CARDS:

 


 

 

Focus or out of

 

a stream of wind

 

What constitutes you? Is it your eyes?

it’s a matter of depth!

 

turned a circle around impermanently

 

Forehead scars or marks.

That makes two of us. 

 

Now we’re being watched

 

diagonally from left to right

 

break through the form

 

what might will be

 

might sound crazy but I know your smell already.

 

worship exchange

 

A dragon’s tail dipped in the ocean

 

to laugh

 

How does one not see abode body?

How do you look past a body → through.

How does one make you more than that

 

And all of a sudden you are no longer your body.

 

a drip to walk into the past

 

Alright - that really was Amy! 

haha! I we love Amy. 

 

move into interruption

 

as the bottom falls out in a fuzz

in a phase of blurry edges -

nothing below

 

REFLECTION

 

another drip drops

 

A flicker of sadness

A flicker of death.

 

a dark imbalance switches sides

 

Oh! Yes! Of course!

           ↓

       NOISE 

 

surrender in

 

Telepathy in the ears 

not necessarily in the eyes. 

 

 

reverse a cycle of years fallen.

 

 

To let you be in your body - to not pull you out of it. 

 

 

 

remains present in all parts at once

 

It’s been nice knowing you.

 

loosing the edges

 

a present

past future

 

proportionately shifting

 

you

 

when it breaks run with it.

 

you make the call.

 

close in around

 

have my eyes

 

an expression through foreign glass.

 

I switched three times and you not once. 

 

I can be with you in silence

 

slide through and pop

 

the fascination of youth to return

 

where it began I saw the man
