N THE TOP FLOOR OF AN APARTMENT BLOCK IN AN INFAMOUS AREA OF THE EAST VILLAGE, NEW YORK CITY, TIMOTHY SACCENTI IS MAKING TEA. SITTING AT HIS WINDOW, OVERLOOKING THE PARK, HE IS ANALYSING THE SMALLEST DETAIL. HE STARES INTO A SPACE COVERED WITH ENDLESS REAMS OF A4 PAPER, NOTATIONS, DRAWINGS, DIRECTIONS AND FEELINGS. MAPS AND GUIDES STOPS,STARTS BEGINNING AND ENDINGS. HE GETS OUT OF THE CHAIR AND SHUFFLES SHOELESS TO THE SUGAR, ADDING ONE MORE. A SMALL SMILE COVERS HIS FACE. HE MUMBLES SOMETHING, CHECKING FOR A NUMBER HE WROTE ON HIS WRIST. IT WON’T BE A PROBLEM. ITS ALL COMING TOGETHER, I PROMISE. HIS LAPTOP IS ROASTING HOT ON THE TURKISH CARPET AND SAT ON ITS EDGE LIKE A BOOK ON A SHELF, HUMMING LIKE A MACHINE THAT MOVES A FOOT A MINUTE. BACK AT THE WINDOW THE THOUGHTS COME BACK LIKE A MIRACLE FLASH OF LIGHTNING STRIKE. HIS EYES WIDEN WHEN THE RESULT APPEARS. words by aidan kelly
