Recycled, colorful pieces of memories and cloth.
It holds my dreams and stale sandwiches.
I stuff it with almost everything I need.
Sometimes it gets too heavy and it hurts my neck and shoulders.
I think of throwing it to the ground with a thud.
I don't do that.
I love it.
It was made by your hands and mine.
Just a touch of its handles brings me close to you again.
I miss you.
Every day.
Tina Zadnik lives and works in Ljubljana. She is currently enrolled in the second year of her master’s course at the School of Arts at the University of Nova Gorica, with a focus on stop motion animation. In addition to classical animation, she is also interested in other manual forms of expression, so she often engages in cutting paper with a scalpel, sewing patchwork collages and other similar practices.
