Gallery 13, Episode 6 - Meeting Seventy-Nine
Andrea Wulf, a German author of books about horticulture and Alexander von Humboldt, who in 2019 will be making a graphic novel about him, donates a labelling machine, which she uses to re-label the spice jars in her house, which she finds very satisfying.
Vikram Jayanti, a Jewish Indian-American double-Oscar winning film documentary maker, producer and director, whose films cover subjects as diverse as super-fans, brothels, and Garry Kasparov, provides a mirror that will reflect a maserpiece that you will never make that you think you will. This is because he feels he has never made his perfect film.
Bridget Christie, an award-winning stand-up comedian and feminist, who rose to fame after making a stand-up show inspired by Bic pens that were made for women and were more expensive, and who as also performed as an ant on stage, gives the Museum a vial of her tears. While she is a happy person, she cries all the time, often over trivial matters concerning other people. The only thing about herself that she has cried about was her mother's death.
