"Crystal Identity” is long-term ongoing project. I started the researches and basic realizations in 2017. I decided to work on it when I realized that for a long time I was feeling that I existed only in the face of nature. Towards nature, I’ve felt like I was making revisits. Photography has become part of the act of action. And the landscapes and their character have become the witnesses of what happens in the space. I started to look for the "in situ” places, where there appear sublte union, indirectly related to refuge. Allegedly nature was supposed to release alienation.
It’s a tractate on apperception and becoming the part of. I’m inclined to reach out to the invisible and undermine that what is invisible does not exist. I nurture the fragments of nature, traces it contains as the carriers of memory, archetypes. I penetrate those unobvious resources of nature, that are never deprived of its identity. I explore dependences between subconsciousness and memory, traces recalling the past events, which are a memorial as proof of what is hidden. I take the journey to search for identity, balance, roots embedded without the context of time and space.
