"Flirting" features two glowing goldfish of red and orange swimming behind the parchment pages of an ancient Chinese sex manual. In a hypnotic trance, the gold fish of prosperity furtively flirt in a story that begins with Life itself and has no end. They are caught in a stage of exciting but agonizing uncertainty, each afraid to look too closely but even more scared to look away while the tiniest signals dictate the most monumental of outcomes across the spaces in which they diverge, converge and mutually occupy. [Pete Bradt]
