ABOUT THE PROJECT
Everyday Strangers is a video work which meanders between intimate scenes of different characters in moments of being alone. This video present ordinary experiences of daily existence as meaningful and layered moments, meditating on the beauty and absurdity of life. The combination of flowing visuals and a rich sound scape engage the viewer into these simple captured moments which create an almost meditative state.
