Things Around Me
During my work, I examine whether one can determine himself by means of his environment and objects in his surroundings. One of the most important aspects of identity search is that one is looking for a specific constancy in which to find identity.
After our birth, we use the fingers and the mouth to pinch the objects, and later on with the emergence of self-consciousness, we can distinguish ourselves from our environment. As a starting point for this process, I take the childhood based on the idea of creating a worldview for the first time by using this material environment. Over time, their meaning is formulated or even fully transformed, but their significance is unquestionable for the development of personality. We associate stories and emotional attachments with different objects, so they become important to us. From this point of view, I ask the question whether with the help of my environment and personal objects can I set up a narrative that can describe man and his story? What is the significance of our material culture in the evolution of our identity? Can we define ourselves through this? In my series I portray my own environment, places that have a special significance for me, and I highlight objects from the same sphere, which can be important factors for my own personal identity. During the work I did not seek to create a formula that could be described, but rather to search for ingredients that could outline the narrow horizon of a man's journey.
