He Had His Lunch and I Had Mine
He Had His Lunch and I Had Mine investigates the ways in which language carries in each letter and pause an implicit history, community, and future. In each re-telling the speaker is exposed, identified as a part of or an other. The same can be said of objects. Through the generations of a single community, there is the risk that the meaning will slip, that intentions will change; something not too different, or maybe entirely different, will form. But swapping is better than loss. Anything is better than loss. Even in doubt, hold on.
