Interactive installation with electrostatic shadows

During our European study trips, we had the opportunity to meet, among others, the Polish light artist, Tadeusz Wierzbicki, who has been dealing with the theme of light and lack of light since 1977 in his experimental workspace, the Studio FormS’wiatła (Lightforms Studio). Tadeusz’s light experiments with shaped and stained glass, electrostatics, reflection, magnetic or white shadows and depolarization of light are aimed for research on new visual representation possibilities of light. But he also knows the magical light effects of sunlight, the full moon, or even snow. Works created in Tadeusz’s light workshop have traveled to Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, Israel and several European countries. In 2015, he was awarded a lifetime achievement award in Locarno.

Tadeusz Wierzbicki’s conceptual exhibition opens a new dimension in the possibilities of the shadow play technique, with which the artist has been experimenting for decades. The unusual interactive exhibition takes place through windows covered with transparent paper and illuminated with candles/lamps, which can be easily witnessed by the public both from the interior and from the street.

Visitors have the opportunity to change the displayed images using various shadow theater techniques and electrostatic forces.

We wish you a good game for experimenting!
