EVERYTHING HERE IS WONDERFUL
[close thoughts from far away]
is a series of postcards I sent to myself from abroad – pictorial moments from “far away,” accompanied by short texts. The project deals with the ambiguous feelings of a stranger, the freedom and constraint of not belonging – on the one side the comfort that no one expects anything of you – on the other side your loneliness and alienation. Obstacles rule your everyday as you lose your routines; uncertainties steer your outlook. Simple things take forever and you create odd strategies to cope.
