Today, we’re featuring a conceptual art series from Hungarian film photographer Domonkos Varga. Here are a few words from Domonkos about his series, Millennium…
Millennium is a series which represents my vision of our rapidly developing and altering present from different and unusual perspectives. In my belief, our emerging technology, industry and problem-solving ability creates other complications from time to time. We are overcoming our limitations and becoming more than just humans. Side by side we also destroy our environment unwittingly and support the growing disparity between social classes, the Eastern and Western culture.
We build but at the same time we deconstruct. It is a circulation.
Millennium, in its title, refers to a new era which started in the industrial and technological revolution since 2000, but it also has a biblical double-meaning. The Bible defines this as a period of time in comfort and peace with thriving average age and well-being before judgement day.
I divided my series into three sections. The first one is dealing with the human in front, the second is about construction and development, and the third consist the themes of environment and pollution.
