(TON) is an idea of the structure of neuron conduction, which can find its reference in the creative and cognitive process, as well as interpersonal communication. Excessive over-productiveness of forms, thoughts or activities performed leads to tensions and fatigue. Reception and conduction of the outside impulses becomes difficult, and the lack of contemplation does not allow for self-identification and causes us to lose ourselves from
the field of view of your own ego-type.
The exhibition is divided into two spaces:
A – the main room – EXHIBITION (OPEN/EXIT),
A1 – Self-knowledge / installation,
A2 – kami PERSON / photographs,
B – the small room – STUDIO/OFFICE (ERROR),
B3 – moving images: Dance / Soliton – the idea of original thought,
/ SOT – the structure of over-productive thought,
/ BI – beyond the intention,
B4 – Lost Crops / stereoscopic photographs,
B5 – Luftmodel / video, photos, graphics.
The symbolic indicator of the over-productive thought is the small room arranged as a STUDIO/OFFICE (ERROR). This space is the accumulation of secondary materials, waste, generated by my over-productive thought. Here one can see the signs of attempts to visualize images of the structure of thought (Dance, Soliton – the idea of original thought / SOT – the structure of over-productive thought / BI – beyond intention). OFFICE/STUDIO will also
help recognize, peek at (photographs in stereoscopes) characters who feel the need to define their own mental and physical condition (Lost Crops). The premiere cycle Luftmodel takes up the biggest part of the OFFICE/ STUDIO space. The inspiration for creation of Luftmodel was the analysis of the text: The Perfect Symbol. Art of Proportions by Marcin Nowoszewski,
manager at a network design agency Carré Noir. The text discusses a perfect sign, using as examples geometric figures and the symbolism of an image of crane. The models for Lost Crops and Luftmodel are the same people. In Lost Crops the characters are dressed only in their bodies and can be peeked at through the stereoscopes. They remain in an intimate relationship with the viewer. Uniformed in white suits with logos of a crane, they become
Luftmodels and are promoted as beings of corporate perfection. Their struggles in the simulated world of nature, in the space of their subconscious (Emulation in the bosom of nature / video-projection) form subsequent symbolic images in the shape of a futuristic phenotype
of a snake, a wolf and a fox (lenticular prints). In WORKSHOP/OFFICE one can also read the afore-mentioned, modified text by Nowoszewski, which in the graphic arrangement will reveal three words: OPEN / EXIT / ERROR. On the floor next to the desk we will find the corporate logo and an excessive amount of scattered paper cranes. Here, I play the role of an artist embroiled in the search for a perfect model, I produce more objects (origami cranes). I succumb to the activity of constant folding, building on subsequent thoughts and their forms. As a result, they cannot be distinguished, and their performance is dispersed. This overproduction and lack of time to contemplate thoughts leads to tensions and dysfunctions of the human body. The viewer, sitting at a desk and having in front of them the paper for origami can contribute to the process of building a perfect model and leave in the space of the studio
yet another, well-known thought and form in the shape of a crane. The floor of the main hall / A and the small room / B was covered with painting foil, as a sign of continuous reconstruction and reorganisation of the space around us. The sound on the first floor of the gallery is made
by the rustling of folding origami paper coming from an instructional video do it yourself.
From the STUDIO/OFFICE one can see the brightly lit EXHIBITION room (OPEN/EXIT) with the Self-knowledge with an image recorder and kami PERSON photos. The installation consists of a chair and two mirrors facing each other, creating the Droste¹ effect of a recurrent image. When we find ourselves between the panes of the mirrors, our perception is changing
and in the mirror image we see a much deeper picture of the reality around us. Multiplication of deformed, reflected images results in lack of concentration and makes it difficult to focus solely on our own, already-defined image. The illusion of infinity can suggest being in another dimension and create in us a sense of kami PERSON, that is a superior, higher being whose value is man. Each of the viewers may appear in the centre of the installation and become its key element – come join the confrontation to find your own image of kami PERSON.
Droste effect is a term for a special kind of recursive picture. A picture showing the Droste effect includes a smaller version of itself. The smaller one has an even smaller version in the same place and so on. Theoretically, this could go on, but in practice this is limited by the image resolution, which is relatively short, since each image is reduced exponentially. The Droste effect can beobserved when you put two mirrors facing each other.
