This artwork focuses on Visual advertisements that had nostalgic values and shared in daily communal life. The visuals are a common memory to individuals that belongs to my generation. The memory is either political or social. The artwork has conveyed on the subject of time and civilization towards the flaws of contemporary political narratives. Jumbled political shifts have affected our view of the past. This had a considerable impact on understanding the future. Also, the art project aims to reflect on contemporary understandings of history and level of communal wisdom.
