The Context

Romania is currently undergoing a complex transformation process that has a dramatic impact on all aspects of life. Besides the shift in mentalities, the landscape is also being irreversibly transformed. These transformations are most visible in cities and towns, but can also be observed in rural areas and in natural habitats.

As a result, I believe that there was a need to impartially document the current Romanian landscape in its totality. This is critical both from a historical point of view and also for gaining a better understanding of the complexity of the transformation process itself.

The Project

Entropy is my attempt to better understand contemporary Romania. The project also acts as an alternative to those initiatives which present an old and idyllic version of the reality that Romanians currently live in.

Until now, the project has covered over 40 places from all over Romania – see map.

In 2007, Entropy was made possible with the support of the Rațiu Family Foundation. I am very grateful to them for their support.

The Rațiu Family Foundation was established by Ion and Elisabeth Rațiu in London, in 1979. The main objective of the Foundation is to promote and support projects which further education and research in the culture and history of Romania and its people.
