"The Good Machines"

Project supported by Mondriaan Fund.

The project is a detailed investigation of old Bulgarian factories built during the Communist regime of last century. Photography and painting are the two mediums that I am using. Some of the plants are still functioning whereas others are abandoned or partially demolished. They carry the destructive mark of decades of time. The strange collaboration between human activities, time and nature has shaped unique and beautiful places infused with mystic atmosphere. Every room in each factory emits a special aroma from a past epoch.
