A virtual world always competes with a real world. Instead of focusing
on interaction with other people, we prefer to stare at a small mobile
screen which constantly offers us new incentives. The incentives which
we choose without any restrictions of space and time in which we are
currently in.

Thanks to this diversity, this form of activity seems to be far more
interesting than what we are doing. Maybe it’s really more interesting?
Although we are still in a real space, it seems like we aren’t there.
The real life happening around just eludes us. We are somewhere “in
between”. We don’t bother being. We choose the lack of participation.
At the same time we are online – still in touch with our freinds. We
hide in diagonal mobile screen. We play hide and seek.

Kamil Kotarba is a visual artist, photographer and art director. Sleeping and food lover. Master's degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.

His work isn’t dominated by any visual style, it’s more about conceptual exploration. Works between art, fashion and commercial stuff. Addicted to images. Taking a lot of photos. Lives and works in Warsaw.
