This project was made while studying abroad in Italy. It is about the difficulties I felt of maintaining a long-distance relationship.

For the title page, I bound rice paper and frosted mylar over it to obscure the text, referencing the physical space between myself and my partner by emphasizing the space between the viewer and the text. Physical touch is required to read the title.
