“The house is part of the environment and it changes as Joel inhabits different memories. The only constant is him and Clementine and eventually even she fades away. This could be viewed in two separate ways. Either the memory is collapsing or it's assembling as he goes deeper into it.”
Asked if he was surprised that the print sold out, Tong says, “I was and I wasn't surprised. The movie is really popular, but I was nervous because I was doing the opposite of what I normally do. My prints are usually brightly colored, attention grabbing, and detailed. This print has muted colors, lots of negative space, and is simple in detail. I'm glad the response was strong because this style seemed to compliment that part of the movie better.”
