Departure indicates a twofold situation. On the one hand, it is the very act of leaving, departing, getting away as an expression of the desire for solitude, abandonment of everything familiar and well known. It represents the desire to escape from reality, referencing an instinctive and ancient longing for unity with nature which currently is treated as an abstract space, isolated from human beings.
On the other hand, it is the process of adapting to the current situation during the pandemic and my recent move to the US. Physically entering and dissolving the landscape, I try to master, appropriate, get used to it, and make myself at home.
