Sinto Falta - (I) Feel (the) Absence
Fond memory of an absent person or moment past, or of something that you are deprived of. The melancholy this absence causes.
Expression used to indicate feeling the absence of someone/something: Sinto falta – I feel
It took me moving to a new country to realize that the simple statement “Sinto falta”, that for
me was equivalent to “I miss”, carried so much more weight to it.
It took me speaking a language that was not my first, living in a culture that was not my own
and being away from many loved ones, to understand how that absence really felt.
With this project, I try to make absence present, in a hope that if I can make my feelings
tangible, concrete, I can explain them.
