Parallel lines(ongoing series)
'Parallel lines' shows the attempt of man to design, and literally: to order and to shape life. Getting a grip on time and space, and on transience. Getting balance with the help of materials and lines. If you need structure (in life) lines can guide you: a line is a tool to follow a path. And a line is one of the most basic elements of design. For this ongoing series I go to places where the modern society is clearly visible. Places like hotels, residential areas etc.. Places where you can see that man uses design elements for a purpose. But those elements start creating their own stories, there own life, as if they are telling another story...
