“I make images without mindful thought of politics, history or even memory. Only later, when I peer with purpose at these clothes, objects and panoramas, does the undoing of Salvador Allende gather in my mind.”

The NYK FUTAGO is with ‘folded eggs’on the high seas out of Hong Kong, due Auckland 21.00h, 29 August 2018, with the assent of typhoons in the ‘hood.
