'FR342' explores the emotions felt in a long distance relationship. The work examines the experiences of everyday life spent apart, but also how the relationship changes when it is reunited. Spaces play a key role, illustrating the isolation felt on a daily basis and how our surroundings dictate our way of life. In every space, there is a desire to find the other, but this desire is perpetually unfulfilled. Everyday life suddenly divides into time between travel; there is always a sense of waiting for the next visit. The periods of isolation transform when the other is present. The relentless searching for a face stops until the visit ends, but waits for the days when flying is not needed anymore.
