MY WORLD IS NOT WHERE I AM

Project is an attempt to describe my own identity as a new Ukrainian society that was born after USSR's collapse. I talk about phenomenon, which characterized us – a non-acceptance of reality, aspirations of escape and search of our own way and own place out of country. I show it in context of Ukraine, young state where I was born, and in the environment of young generation. I want to describe that internal feeling that connects us and related to our state of mind.I used two technologies in my work: digital and analog. In that way I reflected my own life and lives of my heroes. We were born in analog world and have grown in the world of digital technologies. I tried to make a certain contrast – young people against society where society present as a symbol of public spaces. Describing my generation I came to conclusion that cultural identity is more important than nationality.
