From the Badlands project
This statement is a part of accompanying text:
“We all are wasted…only some wander more. We belong to a generation, so deviated and hated. Some of us would like to live at another time in the past. Some would like to live in the future. We don’t need much. Just opportunity to live a decent life… Landscapes of the future are high and metaphorical. The society determents each and every day that our existence is selfish. But the perception of everyone is weakened. We cannot identify our strengths, because we don’t get a chance to fail… Meanwhile the definition of ageing has changed. Ageing has become a process of mental preparation for our own deaths. At 23 I am among the oldest people alive; only changes are consistent.”

"…The challenge appears in the moment when one tries not to enforce symbolic readings when looking at presented images in this issue. Then this imagery becomes “marginal”: exempted from portfolios, test shots, snapshots with no precise intentions or just useless images without tangible context.
This publication brings you to the heart of contemporary artist’s struggle for finding a unique artistic expression… creating an archive of the moment.”
It seems so long ago when we published first zine as Ena Rola Filma; with artists, who were just friends; very good ones indeed. And that is the beauty of it, creating something, collaborating.

Huh; I finally edited my old body of work from Slovenia, titled Badlands. This work will be on an exhibition in my hometown of Stična, on 23rd of November 2013!
I also have a new webpage design by berta and logo, created by Eva Pavlič Seifert

Photography transformed into sublime image. Image production includes scanner footage, aerial photography, 3D images, auto-generated photography, movie stills, photo-booths, glitch photos, re-photographed photos, security camera and any other similar technique of image making.
The most inevitable principle is the grotesque implantation of manipulation.
I made this today.
This is a photo collage of planes and volcanos, that somehow ended up in the same picture. And that was when they said: “Greetings, Volcanos!”

My tour to the Dutch jungle….Captain Willard monologue (Apocalypse now!): "I’d wake up and there’d be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I’m here a week now… waiting for a mission… getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger. Each time I looked around the walls moved in a little tighter."
Bringing old work to light with experiments.
