Slipstreams (You and Me Climbing a Hole in the Sky)
Curated by Erlend Grytbakk Wold

You were picking out what to wear, and I saw that you discarded the blue one with the white stripes. I guess you thought it was too obvious. I don't think you were wrong, but I think that sometimes it's nice to wear what is expected. You ended up putting on the see-through blouse, which was quite the statement.

Nobody knew quite how to approach you, I suspect the reason being that it was hard to determine which way of you was which. Several times I had to laugh at people who started talking to your back. Some didn't see you at all, and I had to point out your location. Later in the evening I was thanked many a time for introducing you.
