In the beginning of 2014 my boyfriend went on exchange to Paris. This radical move changed our relationship. We were lucky to still see each other twice a month. The rest of the time 'together' was spent on the Internet. Via Skype we kept in touch to share our daily experiences. But I wondered who that person was on my screen. Did I look at and listen to my physical lover, or just some converted pixels, bits...?
I started to collect print screens from our conversations and translated his unreal, pixelated head into a new physical paper version.
