Title of work: absence 

(Click here to watch.)

About the work: Tear. Again. Tear. Again. The A and E are mixed. Again. No we do the cursive Z that looks like a 3. Ok better... but not good enough. Again, and this time, stay on the line please.


Absence is a new short piece from dede for Every Brain that explores a particular memory - spellings and handwriting in primary school. In the absence of her diagnosis for dysgraphia (lexia and praxia), she would attempt to write, and often fail.
