От природни, международни, национални, семейни и лични катаклизми, човекът е животно, крайно НЕизобретателно в търсенето на възможности за бягство. Спасяването на нещо цено за един винаги е за сметка ценността на друг.

In Emergency Exit I work with a familliar object from the urban transit system - the small hammer accompanied by instructions for it`s use in emergency situations. By switching the hammer with a knife an obviously lethal weapon I speak about the status quo and giving a warning about the dead end our social fragilities are moving towards.
