The ancient Persian tale of Layla and Majnun tells the love story of a couple whose love is never fully realized. Majnun is deemed mad by the village and thus not allowed to be with his love, Layla. He writes endless poetry about her, proclaiming his love and expounding upon her perfection. This piece re-imagines Majnun as a disheveled writer, creating the idea of a woman of his dreams through endless writing, seen though the silhouette of a woman cast by the pile of paper.
