“It feels like a memory…the mood of a day without the specifics” said Spike Jonze of this image by Todd Hido, which he credits as inspiration for his recent film Her, in which a divorced man who struggles to connect with real women falls in love with “Samantha,” the voice of his computer’s operating system. Both men make work about fantasy and projection, ultimately reaffirming the unknowability of other people.
