Entry Description

Never say never is a project about the complex balance between desires and fears, a story of an intima-te though physical journey through these feelings on board a container ship while crossing the Atlantic ocean. For almost ten years I hadn't been able to travel by plane. I was paralyzed. Even the idea of travelling was quite controversial for me, amazing on one side and terrifying on the other. I knew my dread was a manifestation of something else, something deeper. I decided to make a leap into my desires and to leave for a trip that was thrilling and frightening at the same time. It was an unknown with a feasibility that seemed to be pretty vague and remote. Never say never symbolizes the will of going forward even through obstacles, outlining your own di-rection. Never say never happend in 2015, somewhere between Antwerp, Belgium and Newark, New Jersey, CA.
