Human body is palimpsest.
Consciousness is palimpsest.
Culture is a palimpsest.
The city is a total kingdom of palimpsests, where we are at the same time slaves and kings.
We live among complex systems of layers, creating new layers or diving into old ones — it is the constant orgy of combinatorics as the main life strategy. This principle, which has the property of fractal, pierces everything around us. And we are its source and creation.
The “Palimpsest” project is a small incision of the local environment. With its help, it became possible to make contact and critically comprehend surrounding social and urban atmosphere. This experience of mutual enrichment, without intervention, is one of the most important practices of hodiernal era of globalization, which is so characteristic only to absorb, but not to interact. Since we live in the age of permanent changes, this process must transmute into constant life practice, that gradually will lead to the evolutionary result, as the steps to the exit.
