Sandro Dukić: A Journey Around the World in 100 Days

installation, photographs, 100 aluminium plates, vitrines

"Playing with the idea of reality, of subjective and objective worlds, I started planning my 'Journey Around the World,' which is being materialized through electronic media. Photos which are used for the installation are actually the documentation of the imaginary journey.
Individual and subjective, I identify with the idea of adventure as primarily a journey into 'the unknown.' The journey into the unknown is actually a metaphor for 'different' experience, and is not necessarily connected with any real transfer through space. The real point of origin is found in the past as well as in the yet unrealized future."
