Scene 3 Aliya Vinay Opening Conversation
Extreme close up of Aida trace the texture and lines of the etched paper with her finger
VINAY: Do you know what'd happen if two people living together were to share two different concepts of time?
ALIYA:Umm, like a sphere stuck on a plane land, right?
Struggling to make everyone understand what "up" means.
VINAY:Do you know I read somewhere that the male silk worm can smell a single molecule of pheromone. If I had an olfaction as developed, I wouldn't be able to stand your smell...
ALIYA:You wouldn't be able to stand your own smell with your frequency of showers per month.
VINAY:No but think of it alright. Even subtle differences like, would I think differently if I had smaller nostrils? Or would I have seen the world differently if I was taller or shorter?
ALIYA:Or would the world have been a different place if Gandhi was taller or Hitler was shorter?
VINAY:You know they have actually found a way to prove that reality exists when nobody is looking.
ALIYA:Well I think it exists and I am never looking.
VINAY:Bull shit! You're always looking.
Aliya processes a print of the photograph through an etching machine.
She traces the texture and lines of the resulting etch with her finger - it's friction producing a crisp sand-papered sound.
