You're like a fog
you will appear
no one knows how
you will dissolve
no one knows why
the darkness I feel
I don't see anything in it
you are like dew
which I walk on
morning barefoot
you are
and then
no longer.

This poem comes through the whole book. I chose this one from my texts and poems, as it concerns the topic of evanescence, which I examine in this work. We live in a hectic time, when everything around us is moving forward at such a speed that we do not have a chance to perceive a lot of stimuli. Everything happens incredibly fast. You talk to a person, suddenly you turn around and he is no longer there. You only know that he really was there and that you really talked to him by the fact that he left a trace behind. An imprint that refers to the real existence of a real person. This capture of traces of our existence is our natural endeavor. Each of us tries to leave some traces of our existence, of our transient being. It is this fleeting trace of man that interests me. One of the things that defines a person well is what he leaves behind, whatever time period. In the context of the present, many people do not even pause what they leave behind by their actions, and they do not notice things and moments that are fleeting at all. People aren't very able to pause in fast-paced time and realize themselves.
So I tried to define my own existence and identity by capturing few of fleeting physical traces. I took ten of these records and grouped them into one book as an illustration for my poem. I have created a sensitive and (for me) intimate capture of my transient existence in a certain time and space, which will never be repeated in the same way. A self-portrait photo album was created, but my physical self is not in the photos; there is only a trace of it on them.
Photographs and text are printed on transparent paper; respectively, the bright places are transparent, which is a certain metaphor for the trace itself and its transience; already "disappearing" in the book. The transparencies are interspersed with paper that creates a mirror effect. He is here for several reasons. One comes into confrontation with oneself, which is related to self-knowledge, which is important for self-reflection in life, which is often lacking among people. At the same time, this paper is very sensitive to touch, fingerprints remain on its surface, so that the person who looks at the book also leaves a kind of imprint in it, and we can say that (s)he also participates in it. And perhaps it is this awareness of even the smallest details, the smallest traces that remain after us that can lead to the awareness of the larger traces of us, whether it is actions, words, situations and what remains after or after us.
