This work is describing a single journey to a forest that ended up as an identity definition quest - mine as well as others.
I was born in Moscow, grew up in Jerusalem and currently live in Berlin. As far as I know, none of my ancestors lived for more than a generation in one place. In these conditions the task of self-definition become complex. I speak, read and write in many languages.
Language and typography are defining elements of a culture. By using strict set of rules, they indicate the undisputed nature of a culture both by content and visual form.
In this work, I'm challenging this concept. Along with free drawings, I am using diverse typography styles in different languages to create hybrid outcome - the co-existence of multiple identities in a unified body of work.
