DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
When I looking at my ordinary life, it seems that activities canspeed up or speed down its rhythm; but in reality tomorrow is a placewhere everybody of us gets with the same speed.
The works from these series are almostoldest my works. For creating them I was used my childhood filmnegatives when I was 14 years old (1989 year), photos from familyarchive, and some found photos. The works are created re-photographingon old soviet time B&W film and enlarging sometimes only smallfragments from source photographs.
Inspiration for creating these works was mychildhood memories - I remember that in my childhood I had discoveredsome books in my family's library with the descriptions of differentdiseases and photos of patients. I looked through these books withhorror and then for many months I could not calm down. When I was aloneat home I could sit in the bathroom for hours and think about differentkinds of death that my dear ones or me might befall. These could be themost impressive memories from my childhood.
