In 2013, Russian citizen Ekaterina Ustyuzhaninova killed a Libyan Army officer avenging the execution of Gaddafi. This event provoked an armed attack on the Russian embassy in Libya, which was then evacuated urgently. In the subject of the news reports I recognized a girl who used to be my dormitory roommate. A few years later I found her blocked diary in Web Archive, she wrote under the pseudonym "Kahegha" (a concept from the fictional worlds of Lovecraft), and that finding triggered me for creating this work.

The video "Kahegha" is a mythological space based on personal experience of co-participation in the story of the film heroine. The author creates a timeless polyphony, using eclectic ways of narration: media archeology, computer games aesthetics, elements of re-enactment are combined with a theatrical production of the play, written by the heroine long before the crime.

Book design is the art of incorporating the content, style, format, design, and sequence of the various components of a book into a coherent whole. In the words of Jan Tschichold, "methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve, have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books, these rules have to be brought back to life and applied."
Front matter, or preliminaries, is the first section of a book and is usually the smallest section in terms of the number of pages. Each page is counted, but no folio or page number is expressed or printed, on either display pages or blank pages.
