On internet I started an image research through the former Soviet Union and discovered that we still find a lot of similarities right although the countries are not connected to each other anymore. Somehow the former system succeeded to implement their citizens something no reversible in their genes. How does it come that people still have the same rituals like doing their wedding photos on a war monument? Why does older woman earn their money in the same way on the street? Why they still keep upright soviet rituals for example how the soldiers does marching? And why are even the new things so similar like the architecture and paint of houses? I collected all this similarities from all former Soviet countries in order to design a portrait of Moldova without using any image from there.
Further I designed a mosaic with the folkloristic Moldovan patterns as they where used on many prefabricated flat buildings in order to stamp on local identity.
