Two months ago I set up together with a few friends – Cracow artists with operating on Zabłocie – *Constipation Art Group (ang. *GAS; polish *GAZ – GrupaArtystycznego Zaparcia). The goal was simple, activation of the winter depression time and creative / psychological reconstruction life choices of conscince. Maybe even the way of redemption. Purpose naive, but naivety I could never get rid of.


*Constipation (also known as costiveness  or dyschezia) refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass. Constipation is a common cause of painful defecation. Severe constipation includesobstipation (failure to pass stools or gas) and fecal impaction, which can progress to bowel obstruction and become life-threatening.

*GAS (polish GAZ) is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, liquid, and plasma). A pure gas may be made up of individual atoms (e.g. a noble gas or atomic gas like neon), elemental molecules made from one type of atom (e.g. oxygen), or compound molecules made from a variety of atoms (e.g. carbon dioxide). A gas mixture would contain a variety of pure gases much like the air. What distinguishes a gas from liquids and solids is the vast separation of the individual gas particles. This separation usually makes a colorless gas invisible to the human observer. The interaction of gas particles in the presence of electric and gravitational fields are considered negligible as indicated by the constant velocity vectors in the image. One type of commonly known gas is steam.


There were several ideas on the commitment of our local ecosystems in a creative and social development. Our first formal manifestation of existence was to obtain a grant for “Social-artistic project of Zablocie (Krakow)” support by FIS, in late September and October 2014 Mysterious project ‘ GAS ‘ is a series of artistic and social events about Zablocie (Cracow). It’s try to redefinition , activation and suicide – symbolic act Zablocie community against “wild” policy developers. ‘GAZ’ – part of the performance / opening video art, poetry, paintings, installations, sculptures, preformance, programming, cyber-science and music. Below are some photos. I presented on the gas for the first time, the first of a series of my research installation “Homo sapiens online : Garsoneria”
