experience


‘Golden Beach’ was my Master project followed by the final diploma part ‘Golden Beach, the night experience’. It is a conceptual project with a long process, which I have done with supervision of David Greene, Andrew Holmes, Jonathan Hagos and Declan Molloy. I was looking for an androgynous space with contrasting qualities with exchanged chracteristics. Through studies and experiments with many physical models, materials and environments I created a specific material for the Golden Beach. The project was set on the typical grey english seeside, which has its own history and life. As the contrast I created a space with its own shine, iluminated, working together with the sun and changing colours during the day . It is an architectural project, presented with different media, still and moving pictures to create an experience of a space without the usual lines on the paper. To keep people on the seeside even at night, after sunset and to make them part of the beach, to become the sand or the light, the project ‘the night experience’ followed and was presented as a short movie.

Golden Beach 2011 - 2012

Golden Beach the night experience The sun gone to sleep touch of light inside her dream she becomes the Golden Beach

becoming the sun


Aim of the movie: The aim of the movie is to explain what is happening on the Golden Beach after the sun goes down. It shows what is happening there in the dark, at night and it is supposed to show the atmosphere after the sunset. It shows why people come at night and what is there to keep them excited about the Golden Beach at night. The viewer shoudl feel the connection between the visitor and the actual space of the Beach. The visitor becomes part of the Golden Beach thanks to the reflextion of the golden light. Parts of the body are changing and becoming parts of the beach The viewer should feel the calmness and quietness of the night and get lost in the dreamlike experience of the golden light coming out of the empty darkness of the night. The movie shows the story of ‘Her’, the visitor of the Golden Beach, and her experience of the first night there. The story folo ws the short movie ‘Memories of the Golden Beach. She entered the Golden Beach and meet with a friend that was already waiting for her. Her body starts to change as little pieces of light are touching her skin.

Voiceover: The movie shows two friends meeting on the Golden Beach exchanging a short dialogue after one was waiting for a long time. The dialogue should capture the quiete and calm atmosphere of the night and bring the viewer to start looking. -Hello -Hi -I was waiting for you -I’m sorry I’m late -It’s alright, just lie down -What are u doing? -Ssss, do you see? -It’s getting late,...you should go

Project “Della nonna� was a team work for the course of Food Experience Design in Milano. We were supposed to design a restaurant for a specific food suppliers of frozen meet and premade icecream. Since people in Italy do not trust products which are not fresh, the mission was to bring them the idea that this meet is actualy better then the fresh one, thanks to the special method of freezing. We used the idea of the nonna (grandmum), which has a special place in italian kitchen and tryed to bring the experience of the grandmum cooking for you in the restaurant. Not only the design of the place but also its marketing was very importan and had to be different then other typical ialian restaurants and had

to be able to be repeated as a chain product.

American frozen yoghurt served with fresh fruit from the grandmas garden and bisquits filled with italian icecream in small takaway boxes.

American burger in italian paninni with healthy vegetable and typical italian soups served in a special takeaway boxes and cups were supposed to bring back the trust

for

the

preprepared

food.

Project of the Street art gallery was finished in 2009. It is located in the Old port in Bratislava surounded by the river Donau from three sides. This place is currently filled with old containers, cranes and onther huge mechanisms and has a n industrial feeling. This feeling remains in the design of the simple steel frame with inserted containers, which can be removed and placed in any part of the frame and opened in any direction, which creates a variety of open spaces for the exhibition. This also allows the artist to create the instalation in any part of the world and ship the container back to Bratislava.

Project of the Lomography store was done in 2009. Lomgraphy shop is a brand with several shops around the world and they have theyr own “brand design� with all the pictures on the wall which needed to be followed in this project as well. With that situated on the ceiling and a back wall it makes this small space look longer. The rest of the space is light and luminous as a contrast to the colorful pictures. Inside of the store there is a small gallery, exhibition place for analog/lomo pictures as well as a calm place for a coffe where you can look at books and magazines. Part of the store is also a dark room for developing the films.

Art in Architecture Art in Architecture was a project of a gallery for specific artis, inspired and influenced by his work and the outcome was a print on canvas. The artist Rene Magritte is famous for his “magritte sky� and illusions of pictures in the pictures. Concept of the gallery of Rene Magritte is based on his perception of the reality. It is a simple object, cuboid, which is placed in a simple surrounding but witch anrealistic changed proportions. The media facade serves at night as a mirror of his work, the magritte sky, and you can watch it as a picture in the picture through a hole in the glass in shape of his famous bird over the ocean. The exhibition was held in 2010.
