“The idea for ‘The Lonely Orbit’ developed in my head a few years after I graduated from Lucerne School of Art & Design. I suddenly realized how hard it is to keep friendships alive over a distance. After being together almost every day during our studies, most of our communication now shifted into the digital realm. And somehow this made me feel like a satellite; being constantly connected in a virtual sense but actually separated over a huge distance. I’m floating in an orbit around my friends, who are holding me close with their gravitational pull.”
