Since I’ve never lived and worked in one place for more than some months for the last years, I am asking myself questions about home, origin, memories: how does a place/scene come into existence? By loading it with sentiments, needs, habits? By erecting walls, filling it with materials? Does the concept of home still have relevance in the light of countries growing together, borders disappearing, and the speed and frequency in which we travel from one place to another?
