This project expresses the loneliness of studying away from home. Karen'swork ‘Homesick’ is about the loneliness which she has particularly felt throughout her three years of studying and living in the UK. It reflects on the daily life and experience of a young person who studies overseas and asks the question: "where is my home?"

Karen created a short film, inviting her friend to be the actress who shared the same feelings about studying away from home.
