          WHICH IS THE FIRST LINE YOU CAN REMEMBER, JONATHAN?

JONATHAN DEDECKER: WHEN I WAS A CHILD I USED TO PLAY A LOT OF BASKETBALL. THE LINES ON THE FIELD ALWAYS SEEMED TO SPEAK TO ME. TO ME, THEY REPRESENTED THE QUESTION OF BALANCE AND OFF-BALANCE

          WHICH IS YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY, SOPHIA?

SOPHIE DOMAGALA: IT WAS FUNNY WHEN YOU JUST ASKED THIS QUESTION: IT WAS ONE MOMENT WITH SISTER AT HOME. SHE IS 7 YEARS OLDER, WE WERE DRAWING TOGETHER AT A TABLE WITH A FRIEND OF HERS. I WAS DRAWING A LINE AND THE FRIEND SAID: “OH, LOOK AT THAT LINE, IT’S SO STRAIGHT!” MY SISTER FREAKED OUT AND MADE ME LEAVE THE ROOM. I REMEMBER IT UNTIL TODAY.
