Noticing people, their behaviour and reactions is the core element of this project. Capturing surface, which is human facial expressions, tells their individual stories as well as tendencies of life in the city. Apathy, exhaustion, anonymity, alienation and detachment… Public transport is where these things come across very vividly. Place where time gets distorted, people get carried away with their own matters, even though the environment is always changing and unstable. It is as if every person creates his/her own tiny private space.
