Più Vicino: A Journey to Oneself | Bianca Matalon

Più vicino deals with the process of getting closer and connecting to the natural world, to other people and oneself.
 It portrays a journey, that can be seen as a metaphorical one: while it was primarily a physical journey, it’s mostly an interior one. It shows the stages of personal growth, the making of a relationship and of self-conscience.

This research was born out of a hard time in my life, where a feeling of loneliness and am internal void, started pushing me to spend much time in nature.The natural environment used to make me feel lighter, to take a huge weight off my chest, it allowed me to breathe again. It gave me a sensation of wellbeing and connectedness with it.

The project often shows people, landscapes and natural details in which I saw myself and my emotions; everything started talking to me on an intimate level: a misty sky, the layers of a rock, a person floating in the sea. It’s an intimate dialogue between my emotions and my surroundings.
