“I research the everyday space and its transformations on the background of global uniformity. Under the effect of globalization, the Eastern contemporary space is permanently altering it’s shape and content according to the Western template, using social, political, cultural clichés. At the same time, the loan of a standard lifestyle of consumerism creates hybrids that lead to the loss of the identity of a geographical region. Nature becomes a detail in the architecture of urban space architecture. Aggressive industrialization and consumerism suffocate public space with megaconstruction. The current man is recreating in shopping malls and megaspats, lived illusively in an artificial space, guided by the mirage of the commercials. The space in which we live or consume our existence slowly and subtly transforms into a fantastic world.”
