Artist Statement
IAll of human communication methods are inherently flawed, so all of our attempts to
understand each other, even those who are closest to us, are doomed to be merely
interpretations passing through hundreds of filters. While the world around us becomes increasingly more complex with frightening speed, instability of our perceived «reality» becomes impossible to ignore and the very notion of «understanding» grows elusive. The ambivalence, the ambiguity of message that was once considered a prerogative of poetry has now became an essential part of any public expression, and photographic medium is no different - from irrefutable document it transformed into a vast field with unclear boundaries, teeming with possible meanings.
