Scholarship of the Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship for Creators of Culture, 2014
Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship, Mr. Mieczysław Struk, Kolonia Artystów/Colony of Artists, Wydział Architektury i Wzornictwa ASP Gdańsk [Faculty of Architecture and Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk], Melounge Studio, PoCoTo Stowarzyszenie Projektantów Pomorskich [Association of Pomeranian Designers PoCoTo]
Idea: presenting the relation between design and art, on the background of the Pomeranian region. An honest and real message concerning the collaboration between art and design.
The main point of the exhibition consisted of an installation based on a table creating an optical illusion. The object was a material attempt to contribute to discussions concerning the study of the mutual impact of spatial relations on the behavior of people (empirical application of proxemic principles described by Edward T. Hall). I have also explored issues concerning proxemics in further scientific research.
