No permanence is ours; we are a wave

– Part 2, Victoria Harbour – Ian Alden Russell

 

A phone call, a composition, a conversation and an occurrence connecting Istanbul, Hong Kong and Venice through water, ferries, transience and the temporary communities that form when we embark on journeys and go through periods of transition. Titled after the first line of a poem by Joseph Knecht, the main character of Hermann Hesse’s novel The Glass Bead Game.
