The starting point of this project are some letters sent abroad by Hungarians living under the Communist regime where they talked about their situation, their problems and the way they see life. Reading them I realized how little things have changed regarding our struggles or the way we approach our lives, even if apparently everything is now different from those times.
My aim is to find a narrative through a collection of photographs (own and found), collage, illustration and archival material in order to reflect these ideas. In this case, the physical format is very important, as I believe that the mere fact of being able to touch and interact with the artwork creates a much more intimate experience with the audience. With this project, I want to start an honest conversation about where are we going as a society, what are the real benefits of these comfort days we live in and where all this working and consuming lifestyle is bringing us to.
Here you can see the scanned pages of a notebook I use to explore different ideas.
