Elena Chernyshova - Days of Night - Nights of Day (2012-13)
“Days of Night - Nights of Day is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170,000.
The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.
Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.”
Lately I have been a dying star collapsing into itself, stuck on repeat.
Last night I was at a party and had multiple strangers know who I was from modeling for projects for other artists and that was pretty rad
I also had someone tell me I “embody the Greek spirit beautifully”
Feel weird at parties, go hide in an empty room and take selfies aesthetic~
