The silent book Mīt [meet] is an autobiographical visual poem about a trip by bicycle - preparing for it and experiencing it with a slight touch of magical realism.
Mīt [meet] pronunciation is bilingual: in the Latvian language, it means pedaling while in English it stands for meeting someone or something. 
In the long run, pedaling becomes monotonous and meditative without losing speed. Meeting the other person and yourself in silence, spending time side by side, is very similar.

The need to share this experience arose from observing the vastness of space and perception, around and within that opens up when one moves a little further away from the self known in daily life.
