In Hey There Handsome, I discuss the communication gap that existed between my boyfriend and me while he was away by overlaying text from an email I sent his submarine on a video of the ocean’s horizon. Though email was an option for communication, his responses could take weeks, so I was left waiting. Waiting was a central part of this experience. Waiting for his email, waiting for word that he was okay, and waiting for his return from sea. I went about my life, but his absence was always felt.
