cyber kelin


old new media, wool, human hair, felt

Today the Kazakh ornament often loses its semiotic function, becoming an ordinary decoration. But as an example of the messages it conveyed we can consider the traditional felt carpet, the tekemet. The stolen or sold bride sent a real letter to her family, in which information was encrypted inside the ornament - parents could find out anything: from the number of cattle in the groom's house to the emotional state of kelin (the bride). In my project, I decode the ancient meaning of the carpet and encrypt my personal feelings before marriage by means of the Internet page code of the email to my parents. The syntax of my message is my composition. Its semantics is my perspective.
