I often walk around the city alone. Sometimes I feel that I watch myself
from third person view like in a computer game. When all objectives are completed,
but single quest isn’t. There is familiar feeling when I can’t finish the map,

the empty surrealistic game's space through the photo was my main target in
this project. When I came to Russia suddenly I have visited Saint-Petersburg
where I met the girl who became the end of the search. Moreover I finished the project
too. I think she searches the same, she feels the same.
