To perceive, from the Greek "touch at a distance". Absent Presence is the surreal journey of a disconnected body in an attempt to find itself in the spaces of an empty house. A game of perceptions, between the ambiguity of reflections and distorted shadows, which leads the viewers to wonder about the relativity of what they are watching.

Director's notes
The project was born in lockdown in 2020 as a photographic series of selfportraits taken in the environments of my house. The initial intent was to explore everyday spaces through a new look, a new approach: everything was born as a fun therapeutic way in a moment of social closure and isolation in our homes. Later I had the intuition that these shots needed to be moved, so I decided to connect the photographs to tell a single story and it worked: the common thread was the process and the concept of physical space merging with mental space.
