CHLOÉ QUENUM + ADRIAN DAN: MINIMALLY INVASIVE

The drudgery of creative professionalism.  A mix--‐up in the wash. Your best black shirt now looks like the skin of  an old bronze statue, weepy with corrosion.  
There’s that jacket that makes you look interesting. Some tchotchkes  on the desk. The obsolete deftness with which you made emoticons, now  quaint as shorthand, or flag semaphore.  Hopping from capital--‐to--‐capital, the same sleek wooden angles backed  by a different iconic skyline at the best hotel in .  
Thumbing through pictures of an old crush on your phone, some old notes  from a previous “project” tucked away until they are of use again.  Maybe it’s time for a new shelf, one that angles just so....  Of all the shelves being built in the world, surely there is one that  is just right. Surely someone has thought of you.  
There’s always time to rearrange the furniture; the fettered sticks  that make up letters and words; the rows of images that don’t make a  story.
