In the project My Travels Through The World On My Copy Machine a variety of materials are placed on the copy machine and transformed into moonlit, snow-covered mountain slopes, huge rock formations and cloudy hilly landscapes by the process of copying. Playing with this suggestive perception, two Landscapes of the series are transformed into Selfiepoint installations. The selfie shot becomes a deceptive proof of existence of a wondrous landscape, which however is not a tangible reality, but just an artistic creation that has become an image.
