CO-SWITCH psychological board game

In the series of nine photographs Autopsy of forgetting, I focus on memory – a sometimes

distorted, often incomplete reconstruction of the past. I start from Polaroid frames that I

Sharing. For loose topics and in-depth discussions. 


CO-SWITCH is a psychological board game that thematises the eight areas of our lives, based on the associative potential of objects.

In FLOAT mode (beige), you have to represent a single expression, in DEEP mode (blue) you have to answer a single question using objects. The former is designed to initiate competitive, the latter intimate dialogues, where visualisation and shared thinking help you to get to know yourself and your peers better, in a safe, accepting environment. You can switch between modes by flipping over puzzle and object set cards, or by changing the decks of cards.

Once you don’t need it: all I have is yours

The kinetic installation is meant to represent a dynamic that I have experienced several times in my life, and which Sándor Weöres put into words in his aphorism The Lessons of Life: „Once you don’t need it: all I have is yours” - this is the caption of the market hall of life.”


Once you give up on your goal, you reach it. Once you renounce something, it becomes available again. Once you say goodbye to someone, he/she turns back towards you.



„all I have is yours”. What, who is my everything? You. So you can see details of yourself in the installation. As you approach the work, the reflective elements turn away, so you can’t see yourself. As you move away from the perception zone, the reflective elements turn towards you, so you can see yourself, but only from afar.

Body talks (2022)

The main source of inspiration for the collection is my experiences and memories from the first Vanishing Point psychedelic rock festival in 2017. The moods, visual and auditory impulses I experienced there provided the keywords that serve as the pillars of the collection.


The other constant source of inspiration comes from my own origins. As a Szekler, as part of an already oppressed minority, I feel it is my duty to cherish our culture, to preserve and pass on our traditions. To this end, I have incorporated colours, stripes and their scales, as well as some shapes from our folk costumes, into my diploma collection.
