ONETOPIA


To me and for many, the screen is everything. It’s part-machine, part-portal.

It’s both the virtual and physical combined.

The phone becomes a vessel that takes us somewhere else,

connect us with anyone,

anywhere,

to another world,

To Onetopia.

Chronicling and sharing all of the work I have ever made on One Direction,

Onetopia acts as both an archive, network and state of mind.

Harnessing the transformative power of queerness and the screen, of networks and community, Onetopia is a queer utopian idea of another world that only exists online and in the mind of its viewer.

As in the end what is thought to be utopian is in fact not,

It is visible and most often within reach,

but only if we think it is...
