Installation was prepared in cooperation with the Copernicus Science Centre. I am employing industrial design and video mapping techniques to create a thought-provoking installation which is meant to encourage visitors to reflect on the changes brought about by the Anthropocene epoch in the last fifty years. The Anthropocene is a proposed geologic chronological term for an epoch that begins when human activities have had a significant global impact on the Earth's ecosystems. The effects of the accelerating human changes are now clearly discernible at the Earth system level. Many key indicators of the functioning of the Earth system are now showing responses that are, at least in part, driven by the changing human imprint on the planet. The human imprint influences all components of the global environment - oceans, coastal zone, atmosphere, and land. Installation discuss Great Acceleration that had happened on four earth spheres - hydrosphere lithosphere biosphere atmosphere It highlights the growth of : population, water use, atmosheric CO2 concentration, domesticated land.

ZBIGNIEW PREISNER CONCERT
In collaboration with Mikołaj Molenda
scenography: Boris Kudlicka
Concept development and execution of Video for „Here and Now 2014” concert. Project consisted time-lapse footage used later in multi-layered large scale video projections on semi-transparent screen. The main goal was to create a concert with movie elements at the same time. Zbiegniew Preisner concert „2014 – Here and Now” was performed in the 2,000-seater Auditorium Hall at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre, which boasts state-of-the-art sound design and construction, designed by architects Krzysztof Ingarden and Jacek Ewý. The principal message of Preisner’s new work is the place of human beings in history, modern civilisation and their existential transience. Both the music, and the libretto written by Ewa Lipska, refer to Krakow’s past social and cultural atmosphere, evoked in an unconventional and original manner in the presentation and performance of the music.

ongoing project/ completion date: 07/2015
Interactive installation dedicated for the exhibition of the Polish National Museum of Etnography in the NAMOC Musem in Beijing. Installation is a combination of industrial design and video mapping techniques, created to promote polish culture.
In this project, inspired by the work of Jesus Rafael Soto, I am displaying a footage of folkloric polish dancers on an installation built from 500 transparen tapes. Visitors will not only learn about traditional polish costumes, but will also have an opportunity to join the dancers inside the installation.
Video created to promote mobile application Melo Tree made by DDB creative agency. Application reveals the unique and hidden melody of a tree by scanning its bark.I was responsible for the video footage and editing.
Photography project made in 2013-2014. I was particularly interested in documenting the problem of anonymity of the crowd.It was an interesting take on the classic portrait. By covering certain parts of the body I wanted to draw attention to the environment of the photographed people. Highlighting everything that creates their daily lives.
Video mapping Installation
This project posits a new approach to the classical genre in art which a portrait is. The characteristic form and a different approach toward video and installation is an intriguing factor in this work. “THOUSANDS” is a tale about people, their stories, their environment in which they live, spend their time, work, simply are. Being inspired by maps and using isoheights (lines that link points of the same height above the sea level), in my installation, I created out lines of surfaces representing people. Each surface is a different story, another clip exemplifying a place and entity. By stories that grow on one another and overlap each other I wanted to construct a spatial portrait. Work "thousand" was shown on the "Audiovisual Media Exhibition" in Branicki Palace
glass lighting installation
Project dedicated to one of the Polish embassy in Europe.
Glass lighting installation visualising concepts of solidarity. Project Unum received the first prize in the fourth edition of the competition for an art project entitled “The community of democracy – the community of freedom” ( from polish: “Wspólnota demokracji –wspólnota wolnosci” ) and was later dedicated for the Polish Embassy in Berlin. The most important was to choose a quotation, statement that would be relevant to the idea of the competition. “Freedom is only possible between equals” – Hannah Arendt „ On Revolution”. Everyone who sees the quotation by Hannah Arendt from the same perspactive will be equal to eachother, regardless of their difference. That means that in this situation they must be equal within other recipients. They cannot read the text from any other place.The main idea was to complement the quotation to a form of a glass block. The end result may be attractive in its form, where the viewer is looking for the right “balance” ( “equality” ) between the letters.

Video mapping Installation
Fantoft is a student village, approx. 5 km south of Bergen city centre. Fantoft has 1300 rooms but each of them looks and is designed exactly the same way. Rooms are adapted by the students continuously from semester to semester every year. I recorded around 25 rooms in Fantoft and projected them on a room model. Everytime it is a different story from different room- from different part of the world. Like in a doll house. It is a simple story about the connections between space and multiculturalism.
