MIXED MEDIA PROJECT

Who Are You When
You're At Home

A project created during the first year of the Master of Fine Art (Intermedia) at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. The project consisted of public ephemeral works, including writing out the question “Who are you when you’re at home?” in non-destructive ways in public places, the construction of a temporary makeshift home out of found materials, a series of interviews on the subject “Who are you when you’re at home?”, and a printed book documenting all of the above.

Ephemeral work

The question in public space

I wrote the question "Who are you when you're at home?" ("Kim jesteś w domu?") in snow, on steamed up windows on trains and in Uber cabs, throughout Warsaw and Kraków. I thought that this form of public writing, usually restricted to more playful messages, might be a good way to get passers-by to ask themselves this question.

Ephemeral work

Bike writing

I also wrote the question "Who are you when you're at home?" at Błonia park in Kraków using my bike - my movements were recorded by the app Strava. I then uploaded the result to Strava, Instagram and Facebook.

Performance

Homemaker

As part of the Kraków Gallery Weekend KRAKERS, I built a house out of found materials, using string, tape, zip ties, and a knife as the only tool. The shape of the house was entirely determined by the materials I found. The house was built, and dismantled without a trace, in 4 hours, in Kanonicza St, under Wawel Royal Castle in Kraków.

At the end of the academic year, I created a one-off printed book documenting the project.
