Dialogue, the first part of Communication series, talks about the borders between metaphysical worlds of two beings, that cannot be breached. The idea was inspired by Milan Kundera’s novel “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”, featuring two lovers experiencing complete misunderstanding of each others motives and emotions.
“He listened eagerly to the story of her life and she was eager to hear the story of his, but althought they had a clear understanding of the logical meaning of the words they exchanged, they failed to hear the semantic susurrus of the river flowing through them.”
(M. Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of being)
