KuKula comes from a small town in Israel. All her neighbours were retirees who had both patience and lots of free time, so as a child KuKula found herself playing with dolls and old people. Her imagination therefore constructed itself of equal parts princess fantasies and World War II horror stories. One of the most important things KuKula learned was that “childhood is a permanent state of being—people grow older, but they never fully mature.” In other words, everyone still struggles with their earliest memories, and even the memories passed down from others.
