The modern flow of information is substituting significant issues with an endlessly changing kaleidoscope of images. It's getting so solid that it’s almost impossible to identify the principal stories. Even notorious events, such as terrorist attacks and airplane crashes, are forgotten too quickly, not leaving any opportunity to mythologize what has just occurred. Vadzim Kamisarau immortalizes rapidly aging events by representing them through a difficult and time-consuming mosaic technique. He acts like the classical masters, who created panels of biblical scenes from smalto. The author seeks to revise the topical issues of contemporary life and to emphasize the news that is really important. I
