SQUARE-ANGLE – Chain Bridge

The earth tilted, borders are being drawn in sharp angles by black ink, the purple shade of a scarf, perhaps, on top of the strict lines.  If above me, if below, like an island in the sky. I live here. Budapest. 
A series by Ferenc Forrai.

The completed Chain Bridge was handed over 170 years ago, on November 20, 1849. 

Gyula Illyés


lépnem e szép értelmű sok vason.
Egész mozgó testemmel olvasom.

Kézzel érinthetek egy győzedelmet.

Ledönthették, amit ő megteremtett.
Akár a jó fa, tőből újraserkedt.
Egész lényemmel értek valamit,
valami boldogító igazit;
így szól a szívhez:

dehogy hal meg a gondolat!
míg ember él a nap alatt,
itt mindig híd lesz!”

Square-angle is a symbol of togetherness. The belonging and identity of nations is presented by the unique code system of the series formed by shapes and colors through the literature of the Visegrad countries. Citizens, four times: Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest. Four cities, four colors, one section. Making four cities of four countries four-angled; a common conglomerate.
