Two neighbours reside here.
One knows too much about the other.
And other wants to borrow a whisk.
The door stands in the way of these beings.
Because of this, they leave letters for each other.
They sometimes make love this way.
They know each other through words, symbols and only that.
Letters and symbols are powerful entities in relation to architectural proximity and its effect on interpersonal relationships amongst creatures, mostly human.
The words hold the spaces together.
The doors within create an understanding of the other.

Ana Villanueva is a Mexican-Canadian multidisciplinary artist currently based in Calgary, Alberta. She creates narratives through the utilization of both symbols and sounds in relation to the dynamics that happen between her immigrant identity, personal stories, and the domestic space. She is currently completing her BFA at the Alberta University of the Arts, majoring in media arts.
