MAREUNROL’S _UNEXPECTED SOURCES | AW 2016/17

UNEXPECTED SOURCES is a series of stories about unexpected coincidences, about information that comes to us through simultaneous fixation of a number of things existing concurrently – sound, space, noise, anything that is around us.

The first story of UNEXPECTED SOURCES is based on a relationship between a poetic illustration of forest landscapes and a wall of the modern urban environment. The wall that divides society, social space, private property, religion, thoughts, beliefs, culture, and countries. The wall as a symbolic stamp of territory in the architectonic urban environment.
