"I’m following and spying on my ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend. I pursue them on Facebook, downloading all the pictures they have been uploading there of themselves and each other. I’m placing myself in the new girlfriend’s position, imitating her pose, expression and dressing myself in the same outfit. Photographing myself in the same light as in the picture of them. The figure of me I glue on to the original picture, covering the girlfriend. In this way I build a dream life of my own on top of theirs. During the process of taking the new girlfriends poses, I’m once again, briefly a part of my ex love’s life and I can imagine how it would be to be her." (From the introduction)
