War. Mind tears a weeping woman´s bust made of fragile, sheer fabric. The initial thread, representing a tear, runs uninterruptedly through the whole head, like the everlasting flow of thought, and comes out of the other eye as a tear of thread. This inner dialogue, which appears as embroidered word fragments, is taken from interviews with women about their war experiences.
