In this piece, the lead story is 'A June Farewell'. It's by Dipika Kohli, who is a writer, designer, and also the creative director here at DK. 'AJF' is a work of creative nonfiction, based on her five months in Đà Lạt and the people she met during that time. Softness, petals, stilling, and slowing meld into one variation on a theme, in this light collection.
Dipika Kohli's written and visual work, as well as curations, juxtapose people, place, and found imagery in 'minitheaters'. She engages with media at hand, wherever she is, to build something out of what's available in that moment, with that feeling. A bricolage artist at heart, she thus invites the new to enter any frame: when mixed, there is invitation for those who are participant to connect, reconnect, and revisit their idea of such fixed thinking as 'this is where this is taking us' and 'here is what we know.' Do we know anything, for sure? Ask the quantum physicists. Ask N. Bohr: 'How wonderful that we have met with a paradox; now we have some hope of making progress.'
