One of their most recent projects, "In Search of the Crying Lady," exemplifies this quality. The series began when the pair heard about the existence of plačky (pronounced platchki), or professional female mourners, in Tamara's home country of Slovakia. They set out to investigate the existence of these women, but the pair wrote that it was quite difficult: "We received encouragement from ethnographers who gave us a list of villages where they had conducted research on the subject. Along the way we talked to many people who insisted that the tradition was still alive, but couldn't tell us much more about it. Denying they had anything to do with it, they directed us towards smaller villages and further towards the East of the country, an area mostly occupied by fields and forests." The result of the project, then, is of course not a straight story about plačky, because they never actually found one. Instead, it's a meditation on death and natural beauty produced during the search.
