project developed and organized by Marion Neumann & Juliette Forster


While thinking about spaces and environments in which we live, and which influence us,we can see nowadays that the meaning of personal space and our relationship to the places we belong to has changed in our present society, mainly influenced by mobility, simultaneity and globalization. We are increasingly comfortable with moving between many places and with this movement comes a constant quest for personal spaces within rapidly changing surroundings.
«feeling home» in this world of constant travellers became mostly a construction and projection which is built through elements we find in our daily life — a taste, a smell, a sound makes us recognise something familiar — some others elements we invent in our fantasy.
