CHOIR OF MEDICAL UNIVERSITY IN ŁÓDŹ
The choir was founded in 2005 by the academic rector of Medical University in Łódź. The person appointed to create, coordinate and lead the team of artists was Anna Domańska, the conductor and art professor at Academy of Music in Łódź. The members of the choir are mainly the students of Medical University in Łódź and its alumni - medical doctors, pharmacists and lifesavers. They usually aren't educated musically however thanks to their passion in music and mutual singing they form an amazing group. This passion allowed for a dynamic development of the choir which resulted in a number of achievements, including international honours, like for example a Silver Diploma at V International Festival of Choirs in Macedonia or Silver Award at the international festival in Prague.
The Eight Group adds a new dimension to the definition of fire show. The fire show performed by the group is not an ordinary fire performance.
The show depicts electrifying history of Lodz, filled with emotions, dance and fire. Every spectacle performed by the Eight Group is an authentic artistic experience.
CONDUCTOR – INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION
The Conductor is a fully interactive audio-visual object in public space designed by Dariusz Makaruk. Every spectator may find himself on stage alone, without scenography and instruments. Movements and gestures of the performer on stage lead to visual and music effects. The project aims at making a search for new way of communication – through illusion. Spectrum of music chosen for the project varies from symphonic orchestra and harmonic melodies to noise and dark ambient. Improvised movement of the performer creates video and music instantly, allowing completely intuitive and human control of multimedia contents.

A student of the Architecture Faculty at the Technical University of Lodz. She appreciates the simplicity and sincerity of message and communication. Siwińska practices the knowledge that she has gained in everyday life, both private and professional , trying to compose the space around herself in a practical and structured way. The project represents one of those unwritten symbols of identity of Lodz –a cotton branch. It’s form is given in a very raw manner, welded together from metal parts. This is spposed to recall the association with austerity of big factories, with the metal of weaving machines. Through the illumination of the cotton balls a certain lightness is added to the project, it creates an impression that the best times are still ahead of Lodz.

STUDENTS FROM HAWK (GERMANY)
Light and art at the Hildesheimer Wallungen 2013
Students of the Faculty created new highlights for the Hildesheim Wallungen festival The gray facade of the prison was bathed in magenta and green. A disco ball left the surrounding nature and the roofs sparkle. Kehrwiederturm shone in glowing red and black strands. Fluorescent light created by the glowing passages nightly parkland. In other places opened minimalist light gates and startling new perspectives. The students of the light art workshops had tried to explore the boundary between lighting design and light art. So different light objects and installations created in different places in Hildesheim. Along with the basic technology course of Mr. Wasserfurth and light art workshop by Prof. Schmits and Jan Obornik they created new highlights for the Hildesheimer Wallungen festival 2013. A swing on a parachute, in which one floated under clouds, a tangle of threads that made the position clear. Lollipops that were floating in the middle of the lake, a dilapidated bridge, which was enchanted by billowing clouds of light, a walk-steel sculpture that glowed irritating toasty inside. In addition, you could discover the messages of light trapped in a maze. It betrayed the shining eyes of the visitors, this was a great experience and a great success.
The sculpture „Light Gate“ blasts the viewing habits of a conventional input situation. The normalized static elements become alive by the movement of the viewer and allow an individual perspective.
Flown away ... to dangle your soul, look upwards, let the clouds, swings .... An installation consisting of a swing, a parachute and a sky projection. Sit on the swing and look up at the "sky in the night sky".
The black light installation was built for the first time at the Hildesheimer Wallungen 2013. On a 150m long section with a total of over 2000m fluorescent black light threads and hung next to a path on the trees. This path connected the entrance to the festival grounds. The viewer had the illusion of a tunnel of glowing threads. So the black light with glowing filaments created a passage through the night parkland.
A walk-in light installation consisting of 6 m long stainless steel sheets, 3500 PE balls, and 500 LEDs. One can as a visitor to the soft, go inside protected by steel, which has a great contrast to the sharp, hard edges from the outside. One enters a protected world. Whether it is a reminiscent of the womb, a beautiful dream or a leave of childhood itself.
Born in Munich, grew up on the Chiemsee, after a small trip around the world I moved to study in the north. My fascination with light, I realized during my work as a light jockey in a club in Würzburg. What power light has on the human psyche, I found very impressive and wanted to investigate. And so for two years now I have been studying Lighting Design in Hildesheim.
If you go along the path of the Rose Labyrinth, you can see the greatest desires of five female prisoners in the female prison of Hildesheim on five slides to see. At first sight invisible but with the help of a large cylindrical light in the center of the labyrinth the slides along the way become visible. The dreams are simple and honest.
Photos of these installation projects you can see here.

Bartek Smoczyński - born in 1971. He cultivates graphics, photography, installations and the effort of a publisher. Well-known as a creator of visual conceptions of books and catalogues, author of numerous posters, collector of rare publications.
"The Architectural Object" project is the adaptation and the combination of two objects presented in 2011 ("Kienos" LMF 2011). The gallery realisation moves its centre of focus into the open and natural space constituting the antithesis of exposition environment. It is the extension of the analytical performance in ŁDK Imaginarium Gallery. This time the connected objects form a tunnel which is open and at the same time closed from two sides. "Repetition" is the reference to "Kienos" which apart from the fact of being a mirror reflection is also an objective and documentable medium of the extended virtual space. The visual part of artwork is a combination of the concept of nature with the concept of material world whereas chaos is an integral element of the construction.

There is blue hope overhead, beyond the confinement of turmoil.
Below, there is dancing at the masquerade:
Marionettes tangle under sinister and subtle manipulation,
follow steps on strings in grand coordination.
I am staring into the open eye of a mask, distractingly beautiful, to see what
moves over there,
behind the velvet curtain.
We keep busy but I am boxed in.
All is plastic and clean in the cage but there is so much fear of what is up there.
Here we are afraid of death.
We don’t like the dark and are scared of shadows and wolves.
Blue hope is clear of closed cages.
I wrestle with my unsanitary self and feel shame at my most base desires.
This cage is built of denial, glued by the illusion of dominion.
(Description of Sonia’s illustrations)
