Цель проекта – создание нового типа скамейки: она «работает» как обрамление кадра фотографии.

Идея пришла из концепции социума в современном мире.

Общение сегодня проявляется как в реальных общественных местах, так и в новых виртуальных общественных пространствах. Фотография является инструментом, который работает в обоих пространствах: фотографии реальных мест выкладываются в интернет и выстраивают новые социальные связи в виртуальном мире.

Проект функционирует как «генератор» искусства фотографии. Инсталляция создает искусственное обрамление для фотографий и подчеркивает вид перспективы проспекта.

Конструкция также работает «покрывалом» скамейки, внутри которого люди могут посидеть и даже полежать.

Concept of the project: The idea came from the concept of social in the contemporary world.

Sociability, today, manifests itself in real public places and also in the new virtual public places.

Photography is a tool that uses both worlds: the photos of real places are shared and build up social connection in the virtual world.

The project is an amplifier for the art of photography.

The constructed object creates an artificial frame for photos and amplifies the perspective view of the avenue. 

The frame is also a bench blanket. Inside, people can sit or lie down comfortably.

The project is an amplifier for the art of photography.

The constructed object creates an artificial frame for photos and amplifies the perspective view of the avenue.

The small differences in width of each panel create a play of perspective with the view fixed.

The element can be positioned at various points of the avenue Tchaikovsky.

The best position could be the beginning of the pedestrian path, framing the obelisk in the center of the park.

In the frame is shaped a bear, the symbol of the city of Yaroslavl.

The presence of the bear silhouette immediately identifies the photos that will be taken, creating a sort of socially-conscious brand for the city.

The frame is also a bench blanket. Inside, people can sit or lie down comfortably.

Its special shape makes it attractive, especially for children, who can unleash their imagination, play with the shape of the bear, etc.
