The audio-visual installation mediates fragmented life experiences of migrants, propagating new interpretations and perspectives on the global movement of people through the lens of Cyprus. Despite restrictive asylum and integration policies, maltreatment and deportation, Cyprus remains for many individuals the first stepping-stone to reach European soil.

This journey is a play with fate. In hope of escaping the cycle of poverty and hardship, individuals negotiate their existence between work visas, pending asylum cases and intermarriage. Whilst separated from family members, the desire for freedom, safety, and self determination proves resilient. Overcoming barriers through the connectedness of social media and mobile technology, the imagination of future possibilities seen and unseen is without end.
