“Dotyk międzynarodowy” is an interactive projection combining collage and moving images. The idea results from my early age interest in the technique of collage and the wish to return to it. The work refers to the human condition and current problems of the world.
As an attempt to approach these problems and reflect on them, I use photography, video recordings and an interactive tool. Interactivity is a tool that allows me to create a special “place” where somehow the viewer can enter into the collage and take part in it.
Photography is connected with the reality of the real, physical world that surrounds me. I decided to use images from the internet, because they were made by people who were there and have seen this reality with their own eyes, unlike me. Although it is abstract, it represents real things.
In my earlier work, I wrote about painting: “I am interested in dialogue and the relationship between form, colour and matter. Painting has always been present in my life and is a natural form of expression for me. “I would like to add that sometimes, to some extent, painting also has a therapeutic dimension for me. Painting is a way for me to deal with brutal reality. The film is a synthesis of the painting process. I thought that if I had to show the process itself without the final picture, it would be simply spilling paint.
On the collage projection, the viewer’s silhouette appears, it is filled with moving abstract colours that are depicted in the film. Through a kinekt, the viewer is able to discover colour compositions from the film score. This colour composition is my reaction to “reality” (meaning what the collage presents). I want to invite the viewer to actively participate in the installation. I am interested in having/giving the right to choose (even if it is limited) between the collage and the colour composition. Although I assume different scenarios, I can never completely predict the spectator’s reaction. I am curious whether if he is more interested in a collage or discovering the film composition.
