Blok Wschodni/ Eastern Block | ZUPAGRAFIKA
“Blok Wschodni / Eastern Block” is a collection of paper models representing various modernist buildings in Warsaw, Poland. The series is made up of iconic examples of functional architecture (Rotunda PKO), some less classic buildings, however, familiar to the city dwellers (Za Żelazną Bramą, Smolna 8, Mokotów), as well as ”Wielka Płyta” prefab bloks from the outskirts (Tarchomin). The whole set is eco-friendly as it is made from 100% recycled paper and carton. Each building is hand-drawn and includes a short technical note on its architects, year of construction and exact location.
The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands.
