Our senses never relax. Seeing, hearing, smelling, and feeling, we experience new sensations even when visiting the same places and repeating the same actions. I chose three public spaces in Kronstadt and recorded the movement of my body in those places by drawing the boundaries, which I encountered, including auditory, olfactory, and material ones. Using the recordings, I transferred the boundaries from the original places to a completely different space of the exhibition gallery. Illuminating optic fibres were used as a medium for this spatial drawing and - along with plaster sculptures, found objects, and sound - deal with being original, representation, and memory.
