Are the solutions of the past still viable today, especially in face of technological advances of post-modern societies such as the internet? I’m interested in how urban environments, architectural and transportation concepts can be made more responsive to the needs of its current inhabitants. How cities can become more useful, sustainable and flexible. But: Growth and prosperity are limited more than ever. Cities will have to adjust to this. How will this affect the city’s surfaces in the future? Start to imagine!
Mario Lombardo asks: What should the surface of a city look like?
Olek answers: A loop after a loop. Hour after hour my madness becomes crochet. Life and art are inseparable. City, its dynamic, texture interests me as a state of continuous change and flux – and this includes us.
We’re constantly mutating as we grow, develop, age and decay, and what we tend to think of as “myself” is actually an ever-changing heap of body parts, thoughts and feelings, influenced by a vast range of past and present causes and conditions.
With a miner’s work ethic, I long to delve deeper and deeper into my investigations. My art was a development that took me away from industrial, close-minded Silesia, Poland. It has always sought to bring color and life, energy, and surprise to the living space.
