Araya and Jill, new to Chicago, traveled ten blocks between home and school each day. The project uses door numbers from different angles of the block as a clue to document the process of two people getting to know each other and the city as a whole.

The book records the progressive and slightly fragmented conversations between the two parties. And in the "blank time" interrupted by the roar of the subway are the associations and emotions emanating from the fixed scene. These ineffable parts are like walking sounds in the composition, wandering outside the objective environment and attached to the fixed, real, touchable buildings and their door signs. It is a memory based on the object, but more malleable than the object itself.
