The main area of my interest is widely understood animation. In my artistic practice I deal with animated film in its classic version (short graphic stories), I also like animated experiments (non-camera animation), I am inspired by activities on the border of media, combining animation with music and performance (LIVE performances). For some time now, together with Maciek Bączyk (my husband) I have been co-creating the artistic-family duo kinoMANUAL.
Our joint activity is based on experimenting with a moving image, animation, light-art and sound. It also gives us an opportunity to observe closely the phenomenon of artistic duos, developing their individuality and intense cooperation at the same time.
