The “Hedrokonstrukt” is a combination of the fragments of two words that aptly describe my works. Both polyhedron and construct are things that are well-recognized in my works, and the element that connects all the works of art that seem so different is the thread of the spiral.

More than that, given my current focus on the theme of the idyll, and the timeliness of this theme, I explored the topic of utopia, the artificiality, and the inaccessibility of this state. In this work, I wanted only to develop the “utopian” object “Hedrokonstrukt” but, first and foremost, to show the revealing absurd and irony. In the times of continuous development of new technologies, omnipresent artificial intelligence, and efforts to achieve vertex of fulfillment, something we strive for and which seems the goal of the contemporary society is, as a matter of fact, a quintessence of artificiality.

The result of the research will be the objects and an art installation, which I will show to the local community at the residency exhibition. /Iwona Rozbiewska/
