“SĄSIEDZI”. Isolated in the modern outdoors. Lodz, Poland. June 2015.

 

Sasiedzi means neighbors in polish.

The installation is a reflection on our relationship with modern  outdoors due to the use of new technologies. We are more linked  with virtual spaces than with their physical counterparts. Never before we have been so connected one to the other and at the same time so isolated.

 

Many years ago, I imagined a party full of people, where no one communicated with each other. There was a warmth due to the presence of bodies, but there was no communication.  There was a noise of the overlapping conversations, but the conversations were not between the people present. They were all communicating with someone in the outside world through their mobile phones.

 

Thanks to all the people who have helped me to realize this project , Lodz 4 Cuture Festival team, especially Zbigniew Brzoza and Michal Koroza.
