Residue is the outlay of the creative process of two artists producing artworks in different disciplines. It is the experiencing of intuitivism via the explorative desire of a conversation searching for neither a starting point nor a thematic union.

“Pebbles and scree. And a shard note, thin,

as the hour’s message of comfort.

Audible (before dawn?); a stone.

That made the other its target.”

Opening & closing verses of the poem,

‘Night’, by Paul Celan
