Nostalgia of Space

Editorial Design
Fine Art

Nostalgia of Space is a publication created during the time of the COVID – 19 crisis. As a foreign student in the United States, unable to go home, Nostalgia of Space began as a reflection on feelings of displacement and confusion that I experienced as the crisis unfolded.

This book is a compilation of text messages I have received from family members, friends and institutions from onwards that reflect change in lifestyle. Pieces of text are paired up with collages that display surreal and nostalgic imagery, aching for a reality that perhaps never even existed– socially, personally and politically.
