Roy Lichtenstein's painting changed my project considerably. It focused the theme, the characters, it gave me a visual style, but most importantly, it provided me with a soul. So now, if I go to the MOMA, no matter what, I have to pay a visit to ‘Les Demoiselles’ and to ‘Girl with Ball’. On the other hand, you don’t really need to enter the MOMA to see her nowadays. She’s out there, all over 53rd Street. You can’t miss her...

I developed this idea (a man and a woman are in love but they live in two separate spatial dimensions) for a few weeks until I had a magical encounter with a girl at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). It changed everything.
I had met her before (after all, she is quite a celebrity) but I had never really noticed her. But one afternoon, I went to the MOMA to see the giant retrospective of the great Lee Friedlander, which was an overwhelming, mind blowing and exhausting experience (more than 500 photographs). Although I was pretty tired, since I was at the museum, I had to pay my obligatory visit to the ladies: Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. I could stay in front of them for hours on end...
Then I wandered around the galleries and I saw her: a brunette with huge eyes and full red lips, wearing a dark blue bathing suit and holding a read & white beach ball.
In some unexplainable way, I felt as if she was the one who chose me and not the other way around.
Yes, you may think I'm crazy but she was looking at me...
