Unleashing Screensaver: April 3rd

Posted on: April 3rd, 2018 by Mary Meixner No Comments

Natural Materials Studio is run under the Faculty of Art and Design at Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic. Studies at the college are organized the same way like art academies in the Czech Republic. It means although students are in different years of their studies they are under one tutor, who focuses the education on a particular field defined by a technology or an approach. There are two tutors in the Natural Materials Studio: Jan Krtička and Robert Vlasák. The aesthetic education there is focused on a personal experience with wide range of materials. The students are taught to be crative through the physical experimentation with materials, techniques and forms.


Jana Šulcová: 13 gestures – 9 people – 7 states

I asked 9 people from 7 different countries all across the world to do 13 gestures on a camera. These people were from Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Romania, France, Russia, Belarus and Slovakia. List of gestures: Hello, smile, Agreement, Disagreement, Winning, Trying to interrupt someone, eating a delicious meal, gesture for money, “What´s the time?”, “Come closer!”, “Step aside please!”, I swear, Be quiet!
