As a boy growing up in the '70s-'80s behind the iron curtain of the cold war - East Berlin - I would daydream of all the far away and mysterious places people of the Eastern (communist) bloc were not allowed to visit. The longing for discovery was manifested in long hours and days spent reading books with stories about places I wished to be able to see with my own eyes. This body of work is an attempt to reconstruct the visuals of my childhood dreams when my mind started wandering, driven by a politically suppressed Wanderlust.
