Tell me, how was your day?

Tell me, how was your day? Fragments of a trapped soul" (2020-2021) is a daily series of small format photos (instax mini fujifilm) which documents and portrays my relationship with my home during the isolation days. That relationship was intense since the office, sleeping area and kitchen are all inside the same place. It is a very mysterious approach that depicts the progressive dissolution of boundaries between the house's divisions and between what meant to remain private or public.

My body freedom was trapped inside less than 30m2 which led to repercussions in my psychological and physical well-being. On every photo is registered the day, month and year that it was taken followed by a word or a sentence which describes the scene or object. Sometimes in a direct way, other times subliminal and more like a mirror of my mental state with a touch of irony.

Every picture lays inside a small card box. The box symbolizes the house’s area limitation. The claustrophobic feeling of being inside a „shoe box“
