‘Identity and Place’

‘Today there is a district such as Aukstieji Sanciai (higher Sanciai) in the city of Kaunas, Lithuania. Aukstieji Sanciai is a very central district that is situated alone on the hill between forests and parks alongside the river Nemunas. Economic situation, USSR occupation for nearly fifty years in the past, Lithuania’s government and EU financing – all together shapes the daily life of local community of forgotten district.

This place is unique, because there is a feel of natural evolution and cultural growth as European in forgotten ex-USSR district.

Project about body standards and Vintage Freak Show

Mainly I have focused on social issues included body standards, rejection, stereotypes. I was comparing current social issues with Vintage Freak Show members.
With this project I analysed differences and similarities between past and present. I found that some social problems are still the same like from the past and it is barely changing.


I found that fashion it’s a good way to tell the story about body standards.  This project was personal for me, because my interests are human psychology.
