The project is designed as a spatial installation which starting point is a collage that builds a visual and conceptual content compositions.

It is about small intimate formats incurred by tearing and splitting of different magazines that contain segments of modern society.

The irregular  small cut outs are spontaneously placed one next to another building a form in which lines and surfaces are overlaped.

The juxtaposition, beside the form, has a direct impact on the creation of a composition, which is often intentionally unfinished, intentionally partially covered with a new layer.

New layers are not aimed for  complete denial of the previous one, on the contrary – with their position  they open the possibility of the new conent .

The ceiling, floor, central, left and right wall inside this rectangle are covered with enlarged collage compositions, while the front of the rectangular space is fully open.

In this way, it leaves the possibility  to the  eye of the beholder  a new perceptive experience.

If the subject is viewed from a specific gallery space, we get the impression of a 2D space.

Also,  visitor is allowed to access inside the facility and that way enable  his new 3D experience in space.

Big  white cut-out is set to hang  from the middle of the space and it contributes to the richness of the new permanent meaning of the content depending on the angle of watching.
