The feature starts with the solo artist presentation of this month:
Henry Gwizda

Videoart by Henry Gwiazda (USA)

Henry Gwiazda, is a US new media artist who is working with animated 3D contents analysing time, space and human behaviour. He has found his specific “style” by diving deeply into the psychology of the represented protagonists of unspectacular everyday situations , causing the viewer to rethink his usual patterns of perception. He is fascinated because he does not know what will be happening next and how the protagonists will interact. Even if the viewer remains factually passive, he is not an observer like in a peep-show but sees himself forced into a waiting position to intervene and interact.
