The Space Between Cultures by Gyun Hur

I'm afraid I don't have any assistants helping me in my dissertation writing like Gyun Hur (so envious that I do not have my little house elves) but I really want to conceptualize and talk about my dissertation like she does after everything is over. For some reason the process of her art and my writing sounds so similar in terms of emotions, vulnerability, pain, loneliness, loss, belonging, honesty, retracing, reconstructing, and rendition. Who knows maybe I will construct something new and beautiful out of my old personal memories, something in which other people can find their stories and memories something that can touch others. What a peculiar purpose for a dissertation. I wonder if the genre has room for it :-)
