Once I was asked to take pictures with my film camera for the project, the purpose of which was to demonstrate how fast our world around us changes. And here is a description of my set of pictures:
"Deliberate transformation of the world - that's what distinguishes mankind from the animal world. Not always these changes are beneficial to mankind, but almost always these changes occur to those things which we surround ourselves with, and to the functions of these objects. These items seem to us natural and we do not pay much attention to them, because we know from birth for which purposes they are intended. We do not even pay attention to the fact that over time these things go out of our lives and are replaced by new ones - technological progress has achieved such a level that lives of the objects around us have been reduced to a few years or even months. Two or three of such replacements and new generations cannot understand the purposes of old objects. Two or three centuries passed and a dug-out artefact may cause a scientific battle - what it is and for what it is. An object, which is torn from a particular time and context gets transformed into a thing in itself, which can carry out any function. And those objects and their functions, which now seem to us familiar, simple and clear, will be considered strange, illogical and primitive in the future."
