About Project

Igor Omulecki

The inspiration for this series has been spontaneous installations created by my 9-year-old son, Ignacy. He has been using various wooden elements to build structures. I was fascinated by his vitality and creativity, a primordial energy of creating that leads to making an object. In the case of such a young child it is hard to talk about conscious usage of the visual experience. He is guided by a sense of harmony and elementary principles of composition which have their roots in the structure of visual perception. It is a kind of a play that becomes a form of interference in space and object. The sourcing creative imperative is a vibration and energy that manifest themselves through creation of a new form. I reveal the inside of building an image. Through demonstrating the initial gesture, the traces of the tool become as important as the registered reality. In the result, there appears a previously non-existent photographic image and a new reality of it. The real world becomes a material to be shaped on an energetic level. Mikado is a sculpture of photographic sphere that extracts the shape and structure of post-image.


Prepare yourself for best experience!

Step 1: Prepare Markers

To use this app, you must have a copy of the AR Marker that you can put in place for the camera to see.
(AR markers are found bellow ready for printing)

Step 2: Choose Marker

Select the marker and print it.
You can print the AR Marker on any size of paper if you do not have to resize the image.
You can also use a second screen device to display the AR Marker.
Each marker will allow you to see a different part of the Mikado project.

Step 3: Place the marker

The marker tells this app where you want to vision the hidden part of project.
Place the Marker where ever you want to view the work of art.

Step 4: Aim the camera at the marker

The app must scan the marker first.
Adjust the position of the camera until the app recognises the Marker.
Then you can move away from the Marker and the works of art will appear in the screen image in the place you put the Marker.
