“At one moment, spending time in video chat with my friends I was surprised by interesting hobby of some young and not so young people from different countries to show the camera their genitals, and sometimes making it with the most extraordinary ways. I started devoting more time to these chats, especially trying to find such people. I waited until I come across such a companion, then “photographed” him by pressing “Prt Sc”.

For all the time I spent in the video chats, I captured about 200-300 of such characters, and then selected the most interesting in my opinion. This is how the left side of the picture became. For the right side, I chose trees. Photos with them were created with the use of a mobile phone with 3.2 megapixel camera, monitor, and “Google”. I compared the left side with the pictures of trees, as they are, I think, represent loneliness the most.”
