Two female voices
are overheard on opposite sides of the elevator. One is that of
an elderly woman while the other is much younger. Simultaneously
they are telling the same stories of driving without a license,
reeking havoc at clubs and of wearing a dress so tight the seam
splits. The elevator is clad with a bias-cut mauve gauze reminiscent
of the dress mentioned. Tears at the seam reveal a mirror showing
fragments of reflection.
