The project aim: To try to define concept of "city" out of time and territorial borders. Cities – as abstract concept, with a certain semantic and figurative loading.

Idea of the project:
How often we reflect, what such "city", what it means for us? City is always, something more, than simply geographically certain settlement, than a way of the town-planning organisation of space.
City – is our sensations, thoughts, feelings which intertwine in invisible space and form that single whole, that general emotional and spiritual background in which we live.
In spiritual and non-material aspect, the city is a certain sign, a symbol, which in itself too is a place of creation and functioning by this-oxen, senses and ideas.

«In a city there is a concentration of space, time, energy, human weights and forces. How the city and what is necessary is possible that the city made sense?
Each of us will try to answer these questions in own way.» 1

We will try to consider concept of "city" from two parties: perception of a real city and sensation of a city in itself (as state of mind, as dreams, associations).

Two loves, two arts: a photo - as reflexion of the world and architecture – as transmission medium of internal emotions, impressions and associations (displaying from within outside).
Two colours - black, being set of all colours and white – absolute light and cleanliness and a colour total absence...
