Jai Arun Ravine talks to me about their newest book, The Romance of Siam, just released from Timeless, Infinite Light. We talk about their use of humor in critiquing orientalism, the tourist industry in Thailand, and their process as an interdisciplinary artist. 

The sound of waves breaking is "Once in a Lifetime," the theme song for Thailand's tourism campaign.
