The Observer Effect

“Under the influence of weightlessness on astronauts’ bodies, he has the illusions associated with the position of the body”.

This short sentence was the starting point for beginning of that work. The project is like the process of splitting for perception of the physical world. As a result, the actual world becomes merely an excuse for the existence of the image. An image that has not already happened, once and for all, but is in perpetual becoming.

It becomes again and again to others, under the gaze of exposing alternative ‘reality’. Thus, at the same time, the image itself turns out to be a reason for the appearance of an observer.

Irina Zadorozhnaia works with photography and virtual space. She has studied photography at the FotoDepartament Institute in St. Petersburg. Area of her research is altered state of consciousness in the context of the concept of possible worlds.
