Fast and radical changes, brought by the collapse of Soviet Union in my city – Tbilisi, capital of Georgia – was followed by a fire in my home. All my memories vanishing away lead me to alienation. Taking camera and going through the fired remains of my home-place, old spaces around my neighborhood, everything what refer to my childhood and survived, I try to bring together the artifacts of my personal history and preserve my memory, which reflects collective emotional memory of Georgia.
