This project shows space surrounding me as the post-apocalyptic world. It has no people or architecture, and only separate ruins which jut out of the ground to indicate the past developments.

I used pieces of plastic as the filter to hide part of the image and to allocate the details necessary to me in a landscape.

I look at the landscape as an astronaut who has visited the planet in years after he abandoned it. Therefore, these works have the personal experiences of the astronaut concerning the myth about the lost past and impossibility to begin new life mixed up with documentary details for his field notes.

The combination of commonness and mysticism creates an empty scene for the spectator’s imagination.
