A Late 2 is a series of short journal or diary entries about the artist’s personal and intimate interactions with members of the opposite sex. Hooshmandzadeh playfully re-stages these brief romantic interludes using marbles, haptics and proxemics. In doing so, the artist attempts to explain why his desired partner has been delayed in joining him to set off on their romantic journey.
