In this film, Liza Lou reads an extract from her intensely personal Durban diaries. “What do you want to become?” she imagines her materials – millions of tiny glass beads – asking of her. Personal and profound, Lou's notations reflect on her Durban studio and the local women who rely on her employment, her visionary artistic project and the ability to embrace imperfection and of “letting go”.
