She is Christine and he is Paul. We go by the name of Jukstapoz
which consists of us making work together, as the title suggests,
“side by side in comparison or contrast.”
This is pretty much how our working relationship is.
FYI - what we are doing right now is raising our first child and
trying to be parents… Trial and error, trial and error, trial and error
- a little bit like our work.
We find ourselves inspired by all kinds of things - - - -
the sound the rings make circling around Saturn - - -
the heroic acts that Desmond Doss did in Hacksaw Ridge - - -
people giving everything for nothing in return - - -
our baby - - -
and Christine keeps telling me to write down Braveheart?!
We have cried from (depending on what type of crying we are taking about)
music at some point of our lives - - for people that are not with us anymore - -
from tear gas in the streets of Athens - -
when our baby does something for the first time - -
Christine watching the last scene in Braveheart.
Paul gets angry the most, usually over nothing - -
but we both get angry when people don’t let you off the train before getting on - -
mosquitos in your ear when you’re trying to sleep - -
the essence of evil - -
that English king Edward I in Braveheart.
What takes our breath away in this life is mainly our baby - -
the thought of paradise - the grim reaper - -
and Mel Gibson screaming freedom in Braveheart!...
If a human is to be considered a piece of art then a Baby
has to be the best form of good art - -
oh yeh and Mel Gibson’s Braveheart is also pretty good…!
