Tourism -or traveling- is all about crossing borders, and not necessarily borders of continents, countries, cities, villages or buildings. As already explained in the old mythological stories about traveling to the underworld, borders are not only geographical, but, above all, psychological.

Presentation of the interactive video-project developed within the frame of BIO50}hotel* which is is investigating and questioning the psychological and cultural boundaries through a direct interaction with people.

The room filled with personal thoughts, and while doing this, the space transformed from an unfamiliar territory to a personal and intimate space. The stranger conquers the space, and through his thoughts and through the video recordings he will leave a part of his being behind, like an indelible finger print on the hotel room’s furniture.

*BIO50}hotel is a temporary exhibition hotel established by Alessandro Fonte and Silvia Susanna at MAO - Museum of Architecture and Design of Ljubljana during BIO 50, 24th Biennial of Design, curated by Jan Boelen as part of the research theme Nanotourism.
