More > understanding. They act as a way to grapple with the world of non-stop technological development, global climate change, hyperactive news media, and the omnipresent consumer culture.

It focuses on multiple facets of individual identity, both public and private. The arc of the narrative follows a time traveler as she attempts to stop a violent conflict after it has already occurred. While it has specific personal meaning and a dry sense of humor from my point of view, I invite participants to invent their own explanations of what the narrative means.< Less
