How powerful senses of this world can be expressed? Perhaps, using symbols.
Because symbols mark the reality so deeply, unlike pragmatic sign, which simply points an object. Symbol has its own sense, and simultaneously represents the other one. Symbol is endlessly unfolding in space, giving to subject an opportunity of free storytelling about itself.
Project consists of ten objects, and their configuration – is triangle and square, which personify an intention to growing up and stability. In fact, these symbols have double meaning. Symbols contains various objects from the real world, they became features of human aspirations. Due to its understandable meaning, these constructions do not need to be sophisticatedly decoded. Simultaneously, horizon of their meanings is getting wider. Understanding begins as a result of associative thinking, and treatments are not constant.
Material, from which the symbols made, is a symbol itself. It is metal. Its strength gives the same quality to the concept of current project.
In realism sign means object (reality), in postmodernism sign means sign. Symbol combines realism and postmodernism.
