The set-up of the Phony Towns II video installation, where the viewer digitally manipulates the landscape in order to travel between different geopolitical spaces, is accompanied by photographs, in which the topic of discussion shifts to local cultural-political issues in the city of Maribor.
Phony Towns II humorously deals with the alarming condition of our contemporary society, which is permeated by an erosion of values, the rise of political populism, and the relentlessness of the neoliberal economic fabric of the world.

Phoney Towns is a long runing project that is presented in different variations depending on the gallery space, production and contemporary sociopolitical developments. Part of this project and development is also the experimental film Phoney Sights.
