The featured project, postproduction life ,included two trips to an abandoned (formerly Soviet) town within the Arctic Circle. The artist was fascinated by the dorm buildings – the rooms were absolutely identical. But with minimal decoration from the inhabitants, and random areas of decay, there is evidence that this communist utopia is an unnatural place for human beings. We can deduce certain metaphors and information from the rooms.
