The project “Panelstory” is trying (through the set of 15 large size form drawings) to – at least partly – rehabilitate the prefabricated housing estates built in the past forty years. The project intends to avoid both the cheap admiration of this phenomenon as well as irony. It is an original view of this housing estate culture through the eyes of an individual who lives there and has spent the fundamental part of his life in a prefabricated house. The goal is then to show the housing estates in more general circumstances – apart from other things as the place of daily life of tens of thousands of people for whom it has become their natural environment and home.
The individual drawings – although they might not seem so at first sight – were created by a completely original, extremely demanding and precise technique with the help of special gel ballpoint pens, a T-square and ruler; the resulting picture seemingly resembles e.g. a digital print and is made by totally precise horizontal layering of the individual lines, always in several layers; every single drawing then consists of thousands of lines. The set thus follows up the previous cycles, e.g. Metropolis.
