Also, for the entire Conrad Festival week, Czuły Barbarzyńca (Tourist Services Centre, ul. Powiśle 11) will be showing the winning installation of the Pomyśl: literature (Think: literature) contest in the indoor category: the Brzeg (Shore) project by Natalia Brzeska.

Brzeg is a project of interactive projection in which all the observers participate. The installation is inspired by one of the main motifs in Conrad's books: travel. Entering the space of the installation, we discover passages from novels and quotations with our moves. The only condition for discovering these incomplete texts is to move around - if there is no movement, words disperse. As the texts is presented only in fragments, the participants will have to focus and embrace the main thing about travel: the curiosity of what the next step will bring. Travelling through this virtual world of content, the participant creates their own novel, reconstructing it depending on their moves.

Do come!
