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