In a world where the reliance on social technology is growing the difference between being connected and feeling connected has become an interesting distinction. Not only in the depth of connection to others,but also to nature & oneself. Astrid travelled to secluded landscapes to seek connection in nature. When she places herself in these landscapes,a character arises that wants to connect to her surroundings,but sometimes feels out of place. She can be humble and & anonymous,yet have an iconic appearance. A character that struggles with her urban background and her place in the natural world.
