The project has been supported by the Covid-19 supportive Arts Council Funding and is a part of the Platform 31 initiative.
“Dimensions of Text” series of works created over a period of 19 years, exploring the idea of thought taking the shape of a word, verbal expression or being transformed into text. The works observe the form, structure, social function and meaning of verbal expression, text and sign. They question the identity and the origin of a language.
“Areas of Presence” Our identity for each of us means something else, opens up a question how deep can we reach to discover t he layers which hide the life force which we identify our selves with.

The works explore the relationship between one’s inner identity and one’s perception of one’s self in a physical space.

“Metaphor” 2003, Center of Polish Sculpture Orońsko, Poland - Triennale of Young Artists. A light conduit made from delicate transfusive plastic. Inside, the only one unblocked sky light window was letting in light filtered through ultramarine filters. It’s very delicate physicality created a powerful presence, directing the light into the gallery. People were welcome inside to look at the passing clouds, birds crossing the visible share of the sky and changes of light, as the setting sun was leaving the metaphor.
