If you were here would you calm me down or settle the score
Imagine The Ghost of You Lingers by Spoon as a student art installation documenting a love affair. Layers of transparencies, one in front of the other, each with a different projection. The start of a relationship; the first time you knew that it was a yes and went for it, even though you wondered if this might be a bad idea. The first time you kissed or fought. The first time you traveled together. The first time they saw you ugly as sin and loved you anyway. Or didn't. So it reverses and the images become something else entirely. The last time you looked at their face as they slept and tried to burn that image into your memory. The final goodbye. The sudden encounter with a photograph years later. A reminder of yourself as you once were. The ghost could be you and what you knew would happen.
