“I’d rather your sweet nothings
than someone else’s somethings.
To meet again, to hold (just once),
a tender fragment of time.
I’d love to find that love again,
two souls within the whole.
But death has staked a claim again,
a bridge we cannot cross.
So maybe in a thousand years
when nothing holds us back -
we’ll collide again, strike a chord,
a spark forever more.
But until that day, rest easy sweet,
just close your tired eyes.
For as I move, I make a wish,
‘Oh memory, keep us company.’”
Ensemble Eve's contribution explores what she calls A Fragmented World through her collage work - creating images of places and creatures that reside in her own internal world. In there, characters and places that have often been repressed are allowed to emerge, be seen and be heard. Then, she creates a dialogue with each of these images and provides a brief narrative to accompany them. These images give her the opportunity to connect with very isolated fragments of myself and begin to reintegrate them (or at times, cast them out).
