“Two people. One is very passionate. He is all fire, whirlwind, beauty, endless flight and movement, goodbye to the old; the new life is ahead — he is sure. She writes to him. But the words, the messages do not reach him. The connection has failed. But one can argue, persuade, forgive, love, talk to oneself, feel sad, do things, count days, live through weeks, contemplate for hours, write… Without sending the messages” - Alexey comment this collaboration.

Japanise binding was selected to represent this endless communication and give feelings of modern "swipe" interfaces.
