Dear Cell engages personally with something that exists corporeally within each and every one – and more generally, within all organisms – but which we know more or less nothing about.
a cell is incredibly small and discreet, only revealing itself under the scrutiny of machines and media of one kind or another. yet it is also a mechanism which exerts control – all the more so when unnoticed. and it feels free to fulfil its task, regardless of being detected or not by an observant subject.
