My degree project was designing of a song book that contains Hungarian folk songs about tragic love stories. The main characters of these melodies, in every case, are women who suffered from the expectations of their families, villages
or from their husband.
The specialty of Hungarian folklore is that it uses a lot of metaphors, symbols and allegories. Everything is not what it seems, every emblem, like different kind of flowers and birds, has its own meaning. I think this system with its huge content is beautiful and for people, especially for Hungarians, it is so important to know not just the symbols but their senses as well.
In my work, I wanted to make a contrast and a common point at the same time between our folk art and the modern, digital world. I was inspired by the Hungarian folklore and its imagery, but I wanted to create something new that could be more interesting and more enjoyable for the people who are living now.
So exactly for you guys and I hope you will like it!
