Photography: Color, Digital, Paper, Photo on Paper.

Deep in memories everyone has a recollection of the favorite children toys. These flashbacks can be vivid or dull due to the times. Teddy bears, bunnies, dolls usually don’t move into new houses with their masters, they are not the part of the bright future anymore. At best they will be waiting for us at the parents’ homes.

This phenomenon of oblivion looks much alike to disease of accidental betrayal, which a child makes hypnotized by a grown up’s mind voice. Getting older and more pragmatic, we don’t remember those who filled us with quiet and unconditional love, cured and calmed us down, gave us confidence in tomorrow.

What happened to our childhood and what is going to happen with us, when we will become someone’s childhood? Can we take a look in the retrospect of time? And what are the consequences of forgotten children’s tragedies and dramas in adulthood?

The reflections of the complex mirror can help us explain cause-and-effect relationship of the present. This mirror breaks the space into chaotic geometrical figures and presents the realizing of the essence of the “Doll Gallery” characters. Cubic mirror image as a time and space paradigm lets us reading the psychological profile through the faraway childhood, to feel and understand the regularities of the absolute.
