In 2000, I shared a flat with a person that I had an intimate relationship.

We shared many objects and common area in the flat. All images were made while she was away during 604800 seconds, when I was on my own looking at the objects. The longer I looked, the closer I moved towards the objects.

I placed my camera in the same distance at where I looked at the objects. The physical distances were as close as 10 centimeters, however the result of images reflects the mental distance between us.
