Life is Good / NY (USA)
One of three parts of the diploma project was a mock-up of the "Life Is Good" sculptural ensemble.
According to the plan, two similar objects should be installed simultaneously in two cities
(Moscow and New York were planned).
Each object consists of 7 screens made of metal and colored glass that are placed against any empty wall.
During the day, the colored shadows of the figures are reflected in different places until the sun rises at a certain angle.
Then, once a day, the shadows gather so that they form the phrase "Life is Good".

The project of the urban sculptural ensemble consists of three self-righting bears (6, 4 and 2 meters high) made of mirrored solid material with a musical mechanism inside.
Bears are traditionally regarded as one of the symbols Russia, and the self-righting bear reflects in itself country's ability, having fallen, to rise again, no matter what.
The sculptures are mounted on a special podium equipped with a protective mechanism. The cable system eliminates the possibility of excessive tilting, bearings in the base help the sculptures to move easily and exclude injury in case of foreign objects falling into the gap between the podium and the object.

Costume design for a performance based on the alchemical text "Splendor Solis" about the hero's journey in search of the Philosopher's Stone.
The immersive performance took place in the castle of the Maltese Order of St. John's Gate in Clerkenwell, London.
Since the first act was performed by artists walking through the rooms of the castle with the guests, all costumes and makeup had to match the guests' evening gowns.
The sewing quality, details, fittings and finishing were carefully chosen and made with exceptional care.
