'The Howl for entries had a couple of ideas that my comix is a response to. The first was the context of a game, a loosely bound narrative of rules with enough empty spaces for a customised experience. The second was the idea of invisibility, where the idea of visible is being in contrast to your context and being invisible is to connect with the context such that a merger takes place. The proposed comic is an iteration for a board game that follows the narrative of establishing connections based on our residual selves. 'Teri Tatti, Meri Tatti' ( Your Shit, My Shit) is a connective narrative between you and me, our lives and the many turns of the tunnel that separate your shit from mine. It is a board game that acknowledges the dark chambers of our excretal grunts and urges us to invent the connections between your shit and mine.'
