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.







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




another drip drops


A flicker of sadness

A flicker of death.


a dark imbalance switches sides


Oh! Yes! Of course!




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




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
