The Black-Black House

In one black-black city, there is a black-black house… The places we are raised in do not define us, but they set the scenes for our identities to unfold. Referencing the Russian children's horror folklore, Black-Black House is an investigation into the concept of ‘place’. How does ‘space’ become a ‘place’? How does a nine-story building on the outskirts of St. Petersburg turn into a ‘haunted’ house? Using analytical drawing and associative collaging as a method, this project draws upon media theory, geography, mnemonic systems, and recollections.
