The hug

After delivering Parcel #5 we got a cab. There was no time to process what we had just experienced as I had forgotten the address for the next delivery. Luckily Lucy, the recipient, called my phone and saved us the trip to my place. Giovanni and I were so tired and stressed that we didn’t pick up the apartment number. But the taxi driver overheard the phone conversation and conveniently confirmed the address. Our encounter with Lucy was very warm and peaceful. After a few minutes we hit it off and discovered that Giovanni goes to the same meditation space and knows the same instructors. She offered us some red wine and cheese and we toasted to celebrate.

It’s up!

The exhibition of the parcels is up and will be on display from January 12 – 19 at SP Escola de Teatro (Plaça Roosvelt). Audiences can witness the objects brought to Brazil from Canada through YYZGRU Express. At the end of the show they will continue their journeys until they are delivered to their recipients.

A diagram for a set of possibilities

Spelled in both English and Portuguese a line was drawn connecting the space between each of the letters in sequence using different colours for each language.

Notice the trajectories they trace, the linguistic coincidences and divergences, the shapes formed by their intersections.
