Collaborators’ Q&A: Did the visual artist refract any element of the story that made you see it differently? Writer Nicole Baute: The symmetry of both the story and its structure became more apparent to me. I felt the twins reflecting off each other, identical but not the same. What inspires you in this story? What drew you to it? Artist Løchlann Jain: Even as I reread it now to answer the question I’m not quite sure. I just really love the momentum of the work.
