we are the woods

We Are The Woods was a niche nature retreat/festival of the Czech art scene. Over the weekend we slept in tents and hammocks, walked the woods, sat for lectures about forest and permaculture, witnessed several performances and, for the most part, immersed ourselves in the beautiful wilderness and near-total silence. The meals were only cooked with fire, the electricity for lecture presentation and screenings came from the sun, the herb-infused water from the local well, 70 meters deep. I only took out my camera a handful of times but managed to capture some of the highlights.

joga reset

Such a trip deserves a blog post... Joga Reset was organized by Joga Jana, Moc Głosu (The Power of the Voice), and Cici and Alicja of Średniak, the mountaintop home and retreat. It took me a while to go through all the pictures, because that weekend was something really special. We practiced yoga every day, took part in various workshops, walked the hills, valleys and forest, ate delicious vegan meals and meditated among the unspoiled wilderness. Have a look at this visual diary of my time up the mountain. Full documentation on Janek's facebook page.

almost wild

My neighborhood of Dąbie in Kraków is situated pretty much in the middle of the city, but the river and all the green spaces make it almost wild, especially in the summer. I've been digging through some old projects, looking at "Vistopia" series I did for an exhibition for the Year of Vistula and decided to post these. I miss good weather and walks along the river there.
I've never shown "Vistopia" here, but I'm planning some changes to this (dead anyway) blog and I'll make sure to include it.
