Entry Description

For almost three years, I haven't seen my little sister and while daily conversations via video chat will never replace warmth of a hug, it made us even closer. Despite 5-year age difference, due to special mental interconnection, we have developed strong relationship, as if we were born as twins - we feel each other's pains, thoughts at a distance. 7 hours apart but like in the same room: we laugh, sob, share dreams, make and break promises. The series is metaphysical landscape, study of memory. These are our family places, like our treasure chest full of memories that is on surface of the earth, but only we know where to look. It's about the reflection of reality, unification of space and plane of time - to see the new universe, the familiar landscape in a new quality. This land may be forgotten for some, but never for us.
