The work, made up of twelve pieces by each of us, is a dialogue and a quiet interview with most of what was made and said, left unseen. It is a work of listening and playing, then of daily life examined and separated, and dailiness, nothing but the passage of time. Together as co-authors, co-ordinators, we’ve made some form of writing and cataloguing.
