Inspired by glass blowing, this piece shows the impossibility to externalize human feelings through verbal language. I compare the power of the breath in sculpting hot glass to the power of speech in word formation. Soap bubbles became the evidence. It is not only a love letter, a romantic struggle, but also a contained way of expressing for the females which is deeply grounded in my culture.
