HOPE

Mixed Media

Every day I am inspired by moments and situations that life in Romania offers me. Since my stay here, I have had the opportunity to speak with many Romanians and Hungarians. With time, I started to understand the complexity and the great diversity of the culture. But I also saw different aspects of living in a completely different existence than the one I knew.

 

From what I observed, the bond between family members is immensely strong. Some people still have a very strong connection to their religion. They draw their meaning and optimism from it. It is nice to see them all gathering in the churches and celebrating HOPE and LOVE.

 

But knowing that Romania is a pretty poor country, there is a huge garbage problem that clouds this optimism.

When you walk through the woods, you inevitably stumble upon trash. Old clothes, damaged furniture, industrial waste, and even construction waste dumps are scattered throughout the forest. Unfortunately, although the local police roam the forest daily in hopes of stopping the illegal dumping, they have not been successful.

 

 

I started collecting some of the materials I found in these dumps to create a more ecological and new kind of art.
