A bit SHIT makes a story out of nothing. A conversation between familiars, with nothing new to share and nothing new to report. Its humour is charming and the text a gentle reaction to the current lockdown rules of extreme locality. Two souls forced to find comfort in platitude.
Is this far ENOUGH? Plots the cumbersome manoeuvres of ‘correct’ social distancing. A snatched conversation that is way more about logistics than content, the narrative plays on an innate and awkward desire to ‘do the right thing’ and in doing so, systematically undermines the notion of spontaneous interaction.
RUBBISH is a truism, a love poem and a wide-eyed double take on what it means to social distance from a loved one. Autobiographical, this book underlines the simple but seemingly absurd infringement on our social liberty to physically love somebody outside our social bubble. Rudimentary guidelines are poignantly spelt out in few words and simple graphics. Seemingly so easy to abide by, in practice each and every one becomes a gargantuan challenge with every ‘normal’ day.
