My name is Galina Milkova. A name that represents quietness, serenity, depth. A name that also expresses movement – it means “to caress” in Bulgarian. This beautiful oxymoron I have accepted as an identity. I analyze, perceive and feel the living elements of the environment until I identify an ethical problem. Then search for its solution actively. From an early age I have chosen Art as the purest means of communication with society. Now I recognize it as the most powerful tool for resolving ethical issues. ЕСТ-ЕТИКА (Esth-Ethics) is a platform dedicated to Art. Stripped off formalism, charged with the power of Ethics, in search of its esthetical materialization.

SALGHT е авторска инсталация на Think Forward, която изследва взаимодействието на солта със светлина, както и качествата на солта като материал за продуктов дизайн. След няколко обществени проекта, чрез които студиото се опитва да предефинира етиката в дизайна, арх. Милкова и пр. диз. Николов започват ново начинание – изследване и интерпретиране на характерни местни производства и продукти, първият от които е солта. Инсталацията е създадена специално за “Фестивал на солта”, организиран в рамките на проект “Солта на живота”, LIFE+ от БФБ, БДЗП и Черноморски солници АД.

SALGHT is an art installation created by Think Forward. It explores the interaction between salt and light, and the qualities of the salt as a product design material. After completing several public projects that deal with ethical issues in the design field, Galina Milkova (architect) and Nedko Nikolov (designer) start a new venture – a study and interpretation of typical local industries and products, the first of which is the salt. SALGHT is designed specifically for the “Festival of Salt”, organized within the “Salt of Life“ project.





“To work in architecture you are so much involved with society, with politics, with bureaucrats. It’s a very complicated process to do large projects. You start to see the society, how it functions, how it works. Then you have a lot of criticism about how it works.”
