The images on the "Paraphernalia" project works against a background consisting of objects we use every day - elements of mass culture. These are a page from a book or magazine, cards, CDs, playing cards, underground tickets, etc. In the work "Bubblegum love" the background is made up of candy wrappers. In this way, I want to show how advertising, mass media influence people. The image of the girl shows a symbol of a "sweet life" imposed by the standards of the society around us. But in reality, all this glossy style is just empty candy wrappers.
