So Close Yet So Far Project by Thy Mournia

fav.me/d7woxql

An ongoing project named "so close yet so far" which is all about our daily routine lives and how we communicate with people in every possible way, our feelings towards each other from miles away and how we actually handle the situation when we see someone doesn't matter if she/he is a family member, wife, husband, friend, lover or a complete stranger, through a webcam or a photo shared on Facebook. It is all about capturing the moment and sharing the moment. From the moment that this idea got born many have shared not only their presence they actually shared their lives with me and at the same time many misunderstood the reason of this call for their participation. Many talked to me about their routine lives, wishes, dreams...and some about their deepest secrets that even the closest people to them are not aware of...so far we are from each other, even when we are with someone, actually living beside us, and so close is that distance when a heart is open. A project that is not about photography or a simple photo-shoot of a person. It is all about us, how we are, how we connect, hate, lie, hope, love, desire, humiliate, share, and above all how we act towards a person which is so far and yet so close through a simple screen in front of us. All is about being deprived, and being far away from each other no matter whom we talk to, whom we share our lives with or whom we love, we desire, we hate, we live for. My lifetime project after all these years which would go on as I will take my last breath, an intense and a rough path to walk in...I walk in your shoes, I feel with you, I live through you and we exist through each other. My sincere respect to all whom have joined in till this very moment and lived with me through these fading moments. "so close yet so far"...a solemn pledge to art and to my own soul, as broken as it is... to share, to create and to exist throughout each pixel and the most real thing which is yet to be defined...life.

Add me on Skype (thymournia), I will take some shots of you via webcam and guide you through the process.
If you don’t use Skype and you have webcam or your mobile phone has a camera, take 3 or more screenshots of yourself in a normal size from different views and angles and mail it to " doom.forest@gmail.com"
You have to write me a short sentence describing how you feel these days in general or a poem instead; same line in both languages, in English and your native letters;


"...σ’έναν κόσμο γεμάτο παρατεταμένες παραισθήσεις (Greek)
"...in a world full of prolonged hallucinations (English)"

Delightfully disturbing. Reminds me of the artwork of Stephen Gammall (illustrator for "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark"). Would fit right in with World of Darkness.
