There is a “me” to whom a “she” was suppose to offer a gift that was lost. There is also a “we”, which invites “them” to come and wants to offer “them” something that is considered to be expected, wondering what could that be. There’s a relation of timing and expectation mediated by a gift / offer. The expectation here is also the one of the observer, who expects something to happen. The story of the gift presents itself as an invitation, since it was written in a kind of invitation card. Finally, there is a light box, which contains no images but emanates a white light, and a slide projector with the title of the piece.
