Interactive installation for National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw created by panGenerator as a part of TEEN AGE exhibition. Installation tuches on the themes of selfie-culture, and the fear of permanently losing the digital records of our lives due to technical failures, impermanence of data storage, or simply because of the obsolescence of the old digital file formats. Even with such compulsive overproduction of the images of ourselves we might end up with nothing but the blank memories of our past. Even the data on ourselves will eventually fade away…
The installation consist of the display that prompts you to take a selfie on your phone, which it renders in digital particles on its large 1x1 meter screen. Then a moment later, your face scatters and falls apart and the real black gravel starts to fall at the bottom of the screen in perfect synchrony with the digital simulation. Gradually a dark mound builds up at the foot of the construction

"Forever alone" - this what comes on your mind first when looking through the recent photography series "On His Own" shot by Polish artist Pawel Franik.
Poland is an alma mater of alternative and totally independent cinema, during my trip and speech at Filmteractive conference in Lodz in 2013, I was able to go deep into the atmosphere of pure cinema in that Holywood of Europe. Here is the set of posters created by Krzysztof Iwanski, the student of Lodz Cinema School, for various festivals happening in town. Worth to check out his full portfolio representing him as a very strong graphic design with own visual language
"For the series 'On his own', Polish photographer Pawel Franik captures moments of solitude in vast public spaces. Instead of loneliness, the minimal photographs celebrate the beauty of being alone. By placing his subjects in the center of each photo, he not only portrays an individual in the need of alone time, but zooms in on a place where each person can be in their own private emotional space." via
