Souvenir of my hometown


Unfortunately my hometown, Dunajská Streda lost most of its precious historical buildings during the socialist city development. By losing these buildings the city also lost proof of its own history and collective memory. The design of my souvenirs react to this fact. The series of four postcards depict four of the perished buildings together with the ones they were substituted for. In the realisation of my work I choosed to combine two different techniques. While the socialist buildings are printed on the postcard with black ink, the historical buildings appear only as ghosts underneath them, embossed into the paper.
