  • all days ordained before one came to be
    A story of two people transcending time and space in 1963 and 2013 respectively inspired by the notion behind Ann Hamilton's The Event of a Thread, exploring the ephemeral nature of time and a particular point in space at an instant of time. This photo series aim to tell how the paths of two people cross while transcending time and space. So seemingly in love, so seemingly together - but so did they really meet?

    An excerpt from Love at First Sight
    Wislawa Szymborska (translated by Walter Whipple)

    -
    Both are convinced
    that a sudden surge of emotion bound them together.
    Beautiful is such a certainty,
    but uncertainty is more beautiful.

    There were signs, signals:
    but what of it if they were illegible.
    Perhaps three years ago,
    or last Tuesday did a certain leaflet fly
    from shoulder to shoulder?
    There was something lost and picked up.
    Who knows but what it was a ball
    in the bushes of childhood.

    There were doorknobs and bells
    on which earlier
    touch piled on touch.
    Bags beside each other in the luggage room.
    Perhaps they had the same dream on a certain night,
    suddenly erased after waking.

    Every beginning
    is but a continuation,
    and the book of events
    is never more than half open.
