That relationship was intense since the office, sleeping area and kitchen are all in the same place. My body freedom was trapped for more than 2 months in less than 30 square meters, which led to repercussions in my psychological. In every photo, is mentioned the day that it was taken and a word or a sentence which describes the scene or object. Sometimes in a direct way other times subliminal and more a mirror reflecting my mental state with a touch of irony. Every picture is inside a small card box.
The small box symbolizes the house’s area limitation. The felling of being inside “shoe box”.
