“Model” is a catalogue. It is physical and it is a simulation. It is a picture of the condition. The work consists of three elements: a large-format drawing “The World of Flies”, “Skeleton” and “Speculation”. “Speculation” is an elaborate form consisting of three works: the original nephrolith (kidney stone), which I gave birth in 2010. Next art work presents scaled form, a larger copy of my nephrolith made in 3D printing technology and finally the animation in the form of a video loop. The video loop shows a planet, satellite, asteroid orbiting in the other space of the immeasurable cosmos or the microcosm of the human body. Realities interpenetrate each other. But what can you say about an object only by describing it: “There are objects, even physical ones, whose exact description does not bring any truth. Does the subject of art history belong to those objects for which being exact is equivalent to telling the truth? It is worth asking this question and asking it in relation to each subject “(Georges Didi-Huberman**).
Some facilities have specific coordinates. They exist in two worlds /realities: virtual and physical, each of which is in some sense self-reference. They relate to each other, but may exist separately.
The ink drawing on paper “The World of flies” shows our planet (continents) and is composed of thousands of flies that inhabit the earth – although the planet has its capacity limit. Like humans?
The “Skeleton”, on the other hand, is a combination of ammonite (fossil) and black foil forming the silhouette of an animal, bird, etc. Together they create a picture of the past, present and – what am I afraid of – the future?

*The EAO – An Extraordinary Art Object – emerges from the experience and exists not as a result of a single event of rule. The EAO comprises multiple components – but is more than the sum of its parts. The EAO components are to constitute separate pieces of art, but essential are the intermedia correlations between the individual existences that lead to its creation, and its contextual aspects that affect the viewer and, more often than not, rely on his activity.
