Distant intimacy

 
 

Some leisure, pleasure and treasure.

Most of the travelling guides in book stores are about entertainment or famous tourist
spots. As a traveller, I have a desire to collect and make a travelling guide with some
personally recommended places away from home from different people. We can see some
relatively personal and intimate travelling recommendations in this book.

The travelling guide is a collection of personal memories from everyone I interviewed. The
conversation between me and each of them was usually held in a comfortable and
causal way like having a dinner, drinking coffee and chatting in a private place.

To hear, share, penetrate and substitute to their experiences in an interesting way to
communicate, as if I were able to grasp a part of their memories as well.

This is a kind of distant intimacy, reachable yet unreachable.
