subtitles from left to right:
Flucht ins Passiv.
Guess along the quiz master while the bed was a table
Burned out but happy.
Holy but lonely.

Aber alles was ich doch wollte war ein Tischfeuerwerk.

Contemporary life, well structured to function inside the everyday. Longing to live like the characters in movies, escaping the everyday and live freely appears to be an inaccessible luxury these days.
Low Budget Romance is a series of photographs of appropriated places: details from destroyed low budget hotels and arranged living spaces. Moments where the idea of freedom and random traveling turned into a real action. The digital prints are hidden behind a golden surface. The subtitles of the single hidden photographs leave a poem describing a time on the run.
