I guess that’s how you know you shared something special with someone. They understand you better than you understand yourself.
I wanted to tell you everything. And that hurt because some things were too scary. Some things even I didn’t understand.

As always I began my year with the prediction based on what I was doing at the turnover of the year. This year’s prediction was that I’d be spending my year with old friends and new…in a place far from where I normally call home, seeing and experiencing new things.
These past 5 weeks have been nothing short of fulfilling that prediction. I have been studying a few units in Prato, Italy. Initially I had two friends who were going and knew of two others who were from one of my electives. My friend in an info session stated: “look at all these people..right now we don’t know any of them but after these 5 weeks, we’re all gonna be the best of friends”. I look back on the time we’ve spent with all the loveliest of people and I can’t agree more. I’ve met and gotten to know some really wonderful people whom I hope I will share lifelong friendships with.
If I could go back, I wouldn’t change a thing. Maybe I’d slow time so we could enjoy it a little longer..
The late nights that we drunk and talked..the weekend trips where we visited places like Milan and Venice..the times were we just sat in silence and just enjoyed the company.
I’m gonna miss being here with them, because as much as we hope and try, it won’t be the same dynamic back in Melbourne. We won’t be able to spontaneously have a night at our place or bring dinner to each other’s homes and chat and drink the night away.
I would like to thank each and everyone of them for the amazing past 5 weeks. I try to surround myself with wonderful and kind people and this trip was no exception. Thank you for everything.
Lucy Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are Zim & Zou, a French studio based in Nancy. Giving a dynamic edge to three-dimensional art and installation, the duo prefers using with “real objects”, such as paper, rather than digital rendering on a computer, giving a fresh perspective to intricate works of paper sculptures and installations.
