The lead story for this issue is 'Holography.' It is an excerpt from Dipika Kohli's new book, End of the Rainbow (Kismuth Books / 2020).
Here is an excerpt:
'I’m going to be here for a time longer yet, seems. In Việt Nam. Except for this storm, today, and yesterday, the blustering of it, I am very much content. I like it here...'
Where is here, where is there? Where is 'home', what does that even mean? A conversation in a book form can sometimes reveal more than a walk around in real life. More about the book is at kismuth.com. Images in this collection are from Kohli's archived highlights of visual stories from Phnom Penh (2014-2020).
About Dipika Kohli
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.'
