SOLASTALGHIA  Derived from the Latin  cium - (comfort) + Greek - algia  (pain)    ~ The homesickness one experiences when one is still at “home”.    S  O  LASTALGHIA  has been coined in psychology to describe the pain or sickness caused by an inability to derive solace from one’s home environment, it having altered beyond control or recognition. The ancient Inuit term  uggianaqtuq,  traditionally used to describe an obscure behaviour, often in reference to a "friend acting strangely,"  has been re-employed to describe unfamiliar weather behaviour and unexpected climatic shifts.   A collection of postcards from lost places that still exist - places absent of their presence - explores relationships between psychological states and states of the environment.
