everything here is wonderful [close thoughts from far away]
Everything here is wonderful is a series of postcards, I sent to myself from abroad, small moments of from a travel to „far away“, accompanied by short texts.
It deals with the ambiguous feelings as a stranger, the freedom and constraint of not belonging. On the one side the comfort that nobody expects anything of you --- on the other side the lonesomeness, when „people are strange“ and „no one remembers your name“ (The Doors). The everyday’s obstacles and uncertainties rule your day as you lose your used routines., simple things take forever and you create funny strategies to cope with that. Though your problems are really trivial they lead you to rethink your concepts about your life through the back door.
