The basic idea of my master's project comes from the annual Budapest community clean-up, a service generated by the social demand from physical necessity as well as the need of the individual. The title of this series is "Menge", the German word for set, a mathematical term which can be described with the nouns "totality" and "multitude", the very expressions that I use to refer to the trash dumped on the streets. The totality of the sight shows a multitude determined by the properties of its inherent parts in a way that eventually it is not the tiny details but rather the unity that gives meaning to it all. With the help of creative lighting I highlighted these discarded objects which had piled up randomly in time and placed them on pedestrals turning them into public sculptures. Thanks to the lighting I created a theatrical spectacle that makes them appear as stage-sets  - the scenery of our lives - thereby breaking the documentary character of my photos.
