The world is just a word is a photographic and video project by YVAA/RU artist Pavle Banović. Realized as a diary of sorts over the last two months in the city of New York, the footage deals with topics such as personal and public space, documenting and creating subjects / portraits, the absurdity or importance of intimate storytelling as well as the lines between real and imagined through the lens of a camera and the person holding it.
