The mankind today stands in front of ecological disasters, which are a serious threat for the Earth. Earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and other unpredictable ecological disasters have become very frequent, taking away the lives of numerous people and cause economical and financial harm in different continents and regions.
Such an earthquake took place in 1988 in the northern regions of Armenia (the city of Gyumri). Thousands of people were killed and left homeless, about 40% of the country’s industry and economy was paralyzed.
A lot of years have passed, but up to now there are still half-destroyed constructions, which look like living memory of the disaster. This scenery is in Gyumri. Being ignored, they need interference of the human’s creative mind, modernization. These virtual images are the witnesses of the liquidation of the disaster consequences and implementation of new ideas. It also has an alternative direction to realize the importance of artistic interference as an important support to the development of life. They are also contradictions of optimism, creative mind and imagination to the disastrous environment, lost public territories. The territories, which have unique importance for the society from psychological, esthetic and other points of view.
