Structures of Forgetfulness is a photographic series created with an original technique based on the fire element. The photography series is an attempt to visualize one of the aspects of human memory – forgetfulness. The time and memory ceaselessly deform and transform pictures engraved in our minds, altering its form, structure and shape.
The place presented in the photographs – an abandoned building, undergoes gradual deterioration not only through physical destruction, but also forgetfulness. With the passing time, the complete, clear and almost tangible picture recorded in our mind changes its structure blurs and gets distorted, finally to fall into oblivion. The photographs are a static illustration of the fascinating process of forgetting bygone events and places, occurring automatically in our minds. A vital aspect of the photographs is emplying nature in the process of creation. The pictures were made using an original technique based on the randomness of the fire element. Treated with destructive flames, they became barely visible shadows of bygone events. A mysterious and poetic image is created using the annihilative nature of fire.
