Yalta Conference (2013)


This series of drawings is based on archival photographs and documents from the famous Yalta conference (1945). The drawings develop novel quantitative methods of analyzing historical images, using measurements and calculations to discover historical “facts” which may not be obtained otherwise. By developing metrics such as "historical visibility", "influence function", and others, they help to clear up some of the controversial issues related to the Cold War.

The drawings are accompanied by a short film Yalta: A Story of disappearance.
