Exhibition was a dialogue with Robert Morris’ exhibit from Green Gallery (1964). It aimed to link the traditional formation of a sculpture – a visible artist’s gesture, a fresh trace of the creative process – with the arrangement of the space in which it was exhibited. The essay in the catalogue was linked to Michael Fried’s article Art and Objecthood (Artforum 1967)
The Lucio Fontana’s statement: I do not want to make a painting. I want to open up space, create a new dimension for art, be one with the cosmos as it endlessly expands beyond the confines of the picture [Lucio Fontana. Statement, 1965] was a motto of the show.

Ceramic, video projections
Each ceramic piece is a unique handprint. There were three videos projected on the installation from three angles of the room. Each spectator was leaving the trace in a space while walking through the room. The pieces were coming back to line after someone was stepping back

O=O Hourglasses situated in a dark space. Detected by a motion sensor, the flickering light of the “O=O” is activated by passersby. Different lights have different moving sensors, so they are not activated all at the same time. The visitor has to move around the space to see whole piece. Almost inaudible sound of a children’s music box melody is heard throughout the space [the volume is increased for the purpose of video documentation].
Installation set within a darkened space, a former dovecote house for pigeons where ceramic vases remain from the former pigeon residents. Sound of flowing water and flickering light were placed in different vessels. Discovering the space one could move back and forth from dark and quiet areas to catch the sounds and the flickering lights.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road
Installation in a public Space and happening during ArtSesja Festival
In the project the audience participated in making the footprints casts. As a result, the newly created path was composed of the traces of many people participating in the the Festival. The title is a reference to The Wizard of Oz, and to the sentence Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Cracow. Poland. 2011
Installation consisting of interactive video projection of a cave with an unreachable end of a path, and a projection on another side of a room inspired by particle detectors used for visualizing the passage of ionizing radiation (cloud chamber/bubble chamber). While walking through the space slightly filled with a fog, the size of the exit from the cave adjusted to visitors movement. As a result, the end of the path was getting smaller when one tried to approach it. The title refers to Akiyoshi Sinella – the small creature, seemed almost invisible, transparent, very hard to notice, adapted to live in Akiyoshi Cave.

It’s Just a Matter of Time
The exhibition is juxtaposing different structures referring to different temporal scales: ephemeral forms dynamically generated by visitors movement, and objects inspired by biological neuron-like structures and sculptured handprints. Sculptures – artifacts, marbles, and ammonites fixed in different resins – are displayed in a way the artifacts and ancient traces are presented at archeological museums.
The cubic meter space filled slightly with the fog with an interactive video projection is referring to the process of tracing particles where it’s not possible to see the particles themselves but just their traces.
The interactive projection upon the cube with the fog is reacting to how people move around the box. There is a device connected to the projector that is tracking the visitor’s movement. The software changes the patterns of “traces”, their directions, and intensity. The projection is not only influenced by the spectators but also by the projection moving on fog itself so when there is no one close to the box it’s reacting to itself. The visibility of the projection is different from different corners of the room. From some angles it’s almost not visible, from the others it seems very sharp.

Notes of Lighthouse Keepers (Lighthouse Bonita)
Ewa Wesołowska, TanWei Keong
Work consists of time-lapse photographs of the ocean taken from the Bay Area projected upon daily notes recorded in a journal by keepers of the Point Bonita Lighthouse located in the Marin Headlands. A copy of the journal – from 1879 to 1926 –was made available by the National Park Service Archives.
Foils with notes suspended in a room were gently moving by the breeze coming from fan ventilators placed in the room.

When I stand Here I Hear the Earth is Turning
Installation consisting of a video projection, canvas, old dovecote pottery vases and sound. It was completed in Camac Art Centre in France in the the former dovecote pigeon house, where ceramic vases were used as housing for pigeons. The old vases were placed against the window space. During the daytime the daylight would cast shadows on the canvas placed on the floor and recorded every day. Through the arrival of the darkened night, this projection was presented on the wall along with the recorded sounds. The sound was layered and duplicated over time from the previous recordings as it was continually played through the duration of the day. The work was presented for a week.
Camac Art Center
Yellow Red Line
The red web was growing through 3 months on the attic of the La Rectoria Art Center. The space was an open space for public. Every single spectator saw it on the different stage. The only light in the room was the natural light coming through the little window under the roof so the beam of light was illuminating only selected parts of work. On every single hour, the installation looked different. On a ground floor there was an end/beginning of thread and lead the visitor to the main work
