What happens when you combine:
- A real-life conversation in Central Park, Manhattan, back in the late 1990s with 'Tomasz'
- Snippets from M. Kundera's weird but sometimes curious story, The Book of Laugher and Forgetting
- New photographs from Poland, gathered in the space of
- A park in Kraków that conjures memories of all of the above?
You go around the world and then you stop to look at the things right around you. Old stories and new ideas start to intermingle. Coming to Poland after six weeks straight in Latvia, author Dipika Kohli had a chance to slow and still, while also processing ideas shipped and not-quite-worked-out, with a friend.
Focusing on the aspect of time and the things time can tell (or not tell), she wrote this piece based on the feeling of movement, shift, and also of stillness. A park. A bench. another park, and another bench. New York or Kraków, the nineteen-nineties, or today... didn't matter. A youth, his weary expression, and the feeling of learning one another, in a startlingly compact space of time, makes up this uniquely experimental, 'post postmodernish' edition of S P A C E.
