            Statement  In my work I was interested in the interpretation of the natural space, which became a symbol of the historical heritage.  The Aral Sea was once the world`s fourth inland water reservoir. At that time fishing was the main occupation and income for the locals. In the middle of 1960s the sea started to dry, the main reason for that was irrational utilization of Amur Darya and Syr Darya rivers waters for cotton fields irrigation. The lake was splited to two reservoirs, a half of the largest one is completely gone nowadays. And there is no hope for restoration of the natural environment of Aral sea now.  Formerly flourishing sea system extinguished. The change in Aral’s composition of salt, loss of many species of flora and fauna led to total crash of fishing and processing industry. Aralsk town in Kazakhstan which was the main harbor is empty now, young people left in search of jobs. No working boats are left there, only a dozen of abandoned trawlers in the steppe. I tried to use them like a monumental symbols of the death of this lake, like a metaphors telling about the ecological disaster of the region and about rash decisions made in the Soviet Union. And this ships will also vanish soon, sold as scrap metal to China. The last artifacts reminding of former largeness of the Aral Sea will disappear. Huge heath will become of another spot of Soviet legacy.
