My work imagines and visualizes life in both
cities as an endless number of moving images happening simultaneously
at different places in each city.
Out of these movies I select snapshots, which
reveal individual images showing known places in unfamiliar
settings. As a result the lines of identity and belonging
of each place to each city become blurry.
Unfamiliar places can evoke emotions and
experiences in a way where known places suddenly seem strange
and strange places become familiar. The viewers are allowed
to project their own memories into these places and to transport
themselves in their imagination from one city to the other.
