Hybrid 2010
︎︎︎ Personalised carpet, lettering, manual, installation
Hybrid 2010 is an outcome for an end of the year exhibition with the theme “My sanctuary”. In this project I explored a hard topic of my nationally mixed self identity in a slightly ironic way. As an immigrant child you have to fight with the constant feeling of not fitting in as your childhood is connected to one culture, but your puberty is connected to a completely different one making you lose the sense of having a nationality.

A soviet wall carpet is being mixed with the lyrics of One Direction song and comes with a “care and use manual” that is pretending to belong to the carpet but is actually explaining the ways to take care and treat me without discrimination.

Installation (better photos coming soon!)
