'Whole bunch of things converged and I made this,' says Dipika Kohli.
Relationships, stories with others who talk about that, and the theories of why some work and some don't.. for example.
Get the issue called S P A C E | Dublin, 'Mary Anne,' as the PDF file which has all the text in it that is part of the accompanying sound file. Audiobooks? Something like that. Publishing in this way is the start of a new chapter, for DK; why not add a few dimensions to text-visual imagery? Sound, story, music samples: these can also be bricoalged.
This is a new kind of publishing and we're excited to see where it goes.. But thanks to nods of encouragement from some of the most creative people we've ever met in music and art and design and photography, DK is trying stuff. We're carrying forward with some experimental and fun things that we left off on exploring way way back in 1999 when we took a break from NYC. The same emotion, impetus, and spark from those days of simply drifting, simply searching, simply feeling one's way about a big city is inspiring all kinds o new directions. Helps to be in Ho Chi Minh City, which reminds DK of NY. Long story here about why. Skipping it.
Anyway! Inspired by 'cutup' collage, jazz improvisation, more to point, free jazz improvisation, and the things we got to read in the park yesterday that came via post. HT CC.
INSPIRATION. One of the things that I read that inspired the story was this:Of all of those things in life which require such an ideal, untainted environment — organic life and success to name just two — love is perhaps the most misunderstood... Many of us think that we can work a relationship the same way we work our job or build a house. All you need to do is put the pieces into place as fast as possible and you’ll be done sooner than later. Right? Wrong. A relationship needs that time and ideal environment of respect, healthy boundaries, and patience to blossom into real love. Without it, it simply never happens. - Goalcast, a blog I just found, when searching up stuff related to rushing into relationships.

WHAT YOU'LL GET. A 7-minute audio file, which contains the story, 'Mary Anne.' Along with the text of that so you can read along, in this week's issue of S P A C E. Download the files together, when you click 'I want this!'
Dipika Kohli's written and visual work, as well as curations, juxtapose people, place, and found imagery in 'minitheaters' as well as digital 'zines' like S P A C E. 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.'
