Anotation: Project Zureta began as a brief observation of a Japanese student on the differnece between a central European and Japanese response to graphic error. Since graphic error is fairly common, the most intriguing phenomenon is the author´s reaction. While some try to start over, there are some who try to camouflage of implement it and there are certainly those who work with the intention of commintting errors. The aim of the project Zureta was to study the background of this phenomenon.

The authors have long focused on recreational architecture of the 20th century, as the abandoned (utopia) of modernism has expanded over the years from the observation of the late modern bathroom architecture architecture in the Slovak spa to the landscape with a similar architectural heritage in the South Caucasus. The seemingly unrelated geographic definition, however, revealed the fundamental knowledge of the utopia of collective recreation.

This line of artists is thus excluded from the present post-conceptualism or from shallow aesthetics.

The choice of technique in the case of Mary's works is never accidental. Examination of the tactility of banal objects by painting a limited color scale, or the uniformity of individuality by the identical contouring of the face of the face and the projection of the image in the attempt to achieve a perfect non-existent pattern are characteristic of its previous work.
