heres a documentation of our SPECTRUM installation, the project was created in collaboration with Andrzej Wojtas and commissioned by Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability and Culture Lab, University of Newcastle.

The material was than projected on Kings Gate building, Newcastle University in a form of public videoart installation.
Exciting work.. art + science is a great combination.
details of the project below ..
– video installation piece created with thermal imaging camera
by Ewelina Aleksandrowicz and Andrzej Wojtas
SPECTRUM is an immersive video installation that explores the unseen connections between energy circulations.
The existence of energy is often not visible, what if we could see this energy?
Revealing the energy of city life, the transformation of energy accumulated in nature as well as the energy usage of electronic machines?
Could we improve energy usage if we had a better understanding of energy waste points?
Using a thermal imaging camera, the artist will investigate the energy of Newcastle University activities. Filming different parts of university life, exploring thermal imagery of buildings and energy emitted by walls, glass, wood, electronic equipment, exploring energetic differences and connections between different types of materials, machines and human bodies.
SPECTRUM will expose the public to the world of temperatures and relationships between architecture and nature. With Spectrum, Aleksandrowicz and Wojtas uncover the hidden world of energy processes and structures in everyday life.
SPECTRUM conveys the remarkable transformation of energies at Newcastle University’s site in processes that are visible through range of colours. Various colour modes are representing temperature differences – warm, cold areas. Through an incredibly vibrant colour range the piece brings up unique cinematic qualities. The artists have gathered footage from different locations, including; Newcastle University Campus, Kings Gate Building, Students Union, Culture Lab, as well as footage from Whitley Bay – Hockey Match of Newcastle Sports Team.
SPECTRUM project was created with support of Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability and Culture Lab, University of Newcastle.
SPECTRUM will be projected on Kings Gate building between
Dec 16th 2011 and January 6th, 2012

im a digital nomad. a mentally free mental neo gypsy traveller
tempting.. everything is possible everywhere..
my home is where my harddrive is.. /
. : . . : . . : . . : . . : . . : . . : . . : . . : .
. : . . : . . : .
girls and boys tikul and jendrek are heading off to berlin tomorrow!! :D
for good.. for real* for the moment of now berlin will be our ‘base’ …
i mean for a while who knows what will happen.. :) relocation.. pro active creation* magic time in 2012*
new challenges.. creative projects.. gigs.. artworks.. collaborations .. energies.. /
excited to see more often my berlin friends.. and visit regularly my favorite spaces.. o . o
exist in the city with my vibe frequency
.. (new old chapter.. feels like actually coming back ‘home’ .. everything is so familiar.. im there so often / constantly.. its like coming for a visit again and keeping the balance of the present moment.. rather than going into unknown drastic shifts.. :P i dont even feel like i’m changing the living places..
theres nice connection between tikuls and berlins since always / since early teenage years.. 14teen 90s broadening knowledge consciousness moments… first journeys ..first big city. first fascinations.. first contact with culture.. art music experiments
sounds really cliche :d
despite all this oversaturated hype and hipcoolness and all the cliches and the fact that all the world is living in berlin or moving there at the moment… and that it somehow became now a mecca of cool xberg club mate designey creatures … caricatures.. or so. i dont care. i have my own berlin world which works and gives me high… and lots beautiful aliens here :)
… positive side of it, means that everyone else is living here at the moment :P – lots of our friends, great people are close :)
there are thin multilayers of`this city skin… so much air and tiny caves.. angles.. and it always was one of the most important spaces for me…
i’ve never met a person in my life who wouldnt love berlin.. true phenomena* :P
this liquid journey is always up on.. (london-berlin-helsinki route rooted + more.. )* even than, there are still plenty of faces and spaces to discover.. :) ……thrill…
motion.. traveling through times and spaces ..sharing. circulating . . : . . hopefully our crazy collective artworkflow will continue to live its own life as it did for the last couple of years.. it brought us to so many places and helped us to meet many incredible people … we’re glad and thankful* /
Ncl mission accomplished !! last commissioned projects finalised ! (since we’ve finished our masters programme in september’11 ..we had couple of projects to work on until now.. )
ready to go. with the flow ^____^
future plans for september / next year .. some thrilling new ideas…
- Helsinki Media Lab. PhD programme :)
till march i need to concentrate on writing my proposal.. hopefully ill make it!*
Helsinki Media Lab is another magic place to be, with magic people /
great flow continuum ::..
for now the plan is to chill out in between Berlin beauty aliens .. digital art environments / sound + programming workshops .. nerdy meetings .. making circles.. symposiums lectures galleries* events.. experimental concerts and best falafels in the world! bio markets! oh.. .. breath experience* inspire.. mergeee… smoked smokin tofu times
CLEANing the secrets of zen /
we’ve moved to ncl from dublin with a van full of electronic equipments / toys and books.. this time.. we wanted to get rid of as many thing as we can.. we’re coming back to pure zen point zero and buddist ventures :) clean area. new chapters* – 30 huge boxes were reduced to 9 before moving out .. we gave away for free everything we could – books, electronics, drum machines, mixers, bikes, analogue cameras, clothes, gadgets ..to friends, people, charities..wwoooaah!* feels great ..feels extremely liberating.. / freeedoooom* its amazing to travel without the huge luggage.. things and objects are too heavy and are upsetting the energy… // we gave our friends some great souvenirs :) im glad we could make some people very happy :)
i’ve send couple of boxes of stuff home and planning to come to berl with just one suitcase.. haha*
kids summer camp style ! :)
im sure ill be coming back to UK very often for projects, collabs… and continue to work abroad..
i havent even expected that ill come back that soon -
we’ve been invited to ‘Music, Video, Art’ conference.. its on February 22nd at Cornerhouse Manchester – http://www.cornerhouse.org/ – one of the UK’s leading centres for contemporary visual art, film and digital media
