Stocolma (word play and reference to Stockholm and the feeling of being full) is a publication derived from a one year project in Sweden, where Melissa documented and collected edited pictures on her Iphone 4 as a way to trace her experience while also mapping a new personal and  parallel narrative. Experimenting with Apps such as Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp, as well as pop-up ads, selfies and profile pictures, the artist used settings, screenshots, her body as compositional tools to manipulate and construct new images, instances that can be reproduced but never re-enacted. The result is a diary, but also a travel book, but also an art book and a maze of connected multiple and intimate moments.
