"MANY ILL CHOSEN WORDS WERE UTTERED TO US AND BY US. UNFAMILIAR SOUNDS TO A KIND LISTENER. MOUTHS LIKE THE HEADS OF A COMBINE
HARVESTER, TONGUES AS RAZORS. ONE IS ALMOST NOT CRAZY HERE. ONE IS ALMOST NOT CRAZY."

“Zoey is a counterfeit and imaginary AI robot ready to hear your complicated (un)love stories. A covert cousin of Evie the Bot. Zoey’s archetypal origin is ​Zoē – an impersonal force that moves through us and connects us to the other creatures we share the world and our own souls with.”

“It’s the neurochemical dopamine production feedback loop that keeps you hooked and going. As a matter of fact, it is a blessing of the Wired now that you are more connected to everyone than ever, you hold all the relationship knots at the tips of your thumbs -- why shouldn’t you be hooked and going? Even if the internet is a dark place, the dim lights of the screen soothe you.”

“When it comes to love, it matters where you are writing from … So love has to be an accident, coincidence, happenstance. But what else? ... Love is in Italy. And it always needs a bridge.”

Letters to Zoey: HT Ellen

We were squatting the narrative when we were having sex.
You’re my
accusation
lacking evidence
and deduction,
and deduction,
and deduction.

Letters to Zoey: ED FORNIELES & ROKAS VAIČIULIS

“Feeling and finding the words for them are interconnected, we are bombarded with sensations, and unless we can comprehend them and give shape to them with words that psychic energy has the capacity to get caught, to spill out as a symptom, or unchecked behaviour … the idea is simple, a fluency in language is a powerful thing, it allows for the world to become more complex, for depth of understanding and experience. Don’t be a basic newb, work on it. But when that comes to emotional sensitivity I suppose we have to ask what that might mean.”

Letters to Zoey: Ieva Lygnugarytė

Letters to Zoey: Ieva Lygnugarytė

I would like to show you kindness
Show that you shine
Because you are my angel
And they can not
Not love

Letters to Zoey: Keiu Krikmann

but remember the stakes; protect your heart, protect those you love –
love is already political
and the spectacle is always optional
