hi how are you

hi how are you adapts the format of an in-flight travel magazine as a model for building a narrative out of episodic reportage. With a blue sky calling card tucked in the back pocket for lay over calls, hi how are you is the object asking the subject how they are feeling. Picture me scribbling the answers in sky-high hovering movement with images from a birds eye point of view, crackling long distance phone calls to Nadia Belerique and Bojana Stancic over the span of their exhibitions at TPW R&D.
