คุยข้างหลุม I They Dig into the Soil and Talk by the Hole

In conversation, Nawin Nuthong (Tan), Thundorn Kulkliang (Dorn), Nattanon Duangsungnern (Tle), Chayapatr Archiwaranguprok (Pub)

What did an artist, an archaeology student and astronomy enthusiasts do when they met? They looked upon the ground beneath them. Each comes with different thoughts, though sharing a curiosity alike of what lies under. First to make a move, the archaeology student dug a hole with his excavating tools. The astronomy enthusiasts looked at the archeologist and looked up to the sky. Both imagining themselves on the moon, looking back to the earth, they thought of the narrative of Carl Sagan in Pale Blue Dot. The artist, sitting next to the hole dug by the archeologist, opened his laptop while asking the others to sit next beside him. He then showed a pixelated edge hole that he dug in the virtual world to them. Later on, they talked to each other on past civilizations, stars, expeditions, mythology, religions, folklores, comics, films, games and etc., where the hole bore witness to their conversations.
