Coming of age in a complicated world.
Viergela and Layla are teenagers, slowly growing into womanhood.
Growing up in a world where everything is connected, where there seem to be no limitations in possibilities and where opinions manifest incessantly, it is a delicate and difficult exercise to find oneself & to find balance. How will their past, their present and future be connected? How can they listen to their own voice?
The polka dot background, symbolizing the overwhelming effect of the connected dots, creating at times a bit of an hallucinating effect, also has a nostalgic meaning to me.
