A Place Not Far From Here

A Place Not Far From Here is a reflection of the social interactions in our contemporary landscape. The nostalgic nature of the work attempts to convey that the pressure of belongingness in today's world can often lead to a vulnerable state of detachment and seclusion. These objects, structures, and environments present a contemplative examination of our public personas, the insecurities and the solitude that we can all relate to, in a place where it's easier than ever before to communicate with each other.
