ONCE A DREAM DID WEAVE A SHADE

2014 - ongoing

On some level we all want to be somebody else, somebody special. We all look for that transformative thing, that for a moment makes us forget who we are and lets us be free from our worries. I think most people find it on some level or another – a place where they can forget who they are and become somebody else.

In my project I am concentrating on sports fans. One of the ways of forgetting who you are is being a spectator. Losing yourself in the crowd, you breathe together with everybody, you are not you. You are a part of something bigger, something more significant. Something that makes you feel like you are part of what is happening out there on a field, something that makes you forget who you are. It doesn’t matter if you are out there among thousands of people, or in front of your TV; you know that their victories are your victories.
