In our childhood, we were not yet aware of the concrete parameters of reality. Anything was possible, because we didn’t yet know what wasn’t. We believed in faeries and benevolent flying fat men as confidently as we did footpaths and street signs. Imagination built our world as much as concrete and steel. Somewhere Nowhere is a visual portal into that place, a familiar yet constantly changing world which is built in the moments that it’s looked at.
