Dream of Warsaw

project description

We're happy to announce, that Jakub Szczęsny has won the closed competition held by City of Warsaw and Polish Institute in Berlin to promote Warsaw during DMY Berlin design festival! The winning object will be on display during all event (5-8.06) to be later on demounted into pieces and distributed among the public (read description). The installation will be produced by Stowarzyszenie Artanimacje.

project facts

Dream of Warsaw is basing on a simple conclusion that Warsaw requires a much longer and deeper presence in DMY public's perception than just a couple of days of the very event in June 2013. For this reason the proposed object is made to perform it's functions during two phases.
Phase one is when it serves as a "shade maker" in a loud, overcrowded space of the festival. The object has a form of a tree cum cloud made out of particles being children's mobiles, where pictures of infantile animals were replaced with colorful images depicting 28 Warsaw motives chosen by Jakub Szczęsny and depicted by five upcoming Warsaw-based illustrators: Aleksandra Niepsuj, Rafał Szczepaniak, Michał Jońca, Dominik Cymer and Tymek Jezierski. During DMT tired viewers can relax on poufs under the sheltering installation.
Phase two is aimed at slightly a different public, being DMY viewer's children. By the end of the festival the installation will be demounted into it's particles.
This way, about one hundred mobiles will be distributed to the public and hopefully brought home to perform the role of regular mobiles hung above children's beds. Hopefully, the images of Warsaw will therefore become part of childhood of many young Berliners!
