DecodeTheCode, String Art and installations made of wires and ultraviolet light
The Polish duo Podolski-Basandowska analyses the immensity and beauty of the cosmos through installations using the String Art technique.
The works of the Krakow-based duo of Przemysław Podolski and Marta Basandowska are magnificent immersive installations that succeed in restoring the beauty and vastness of the cosmos to the viewer.
Since he was a child, Podolski has always been attracted by the universe, by its immensity, but also by the unknown. He never lost this passion, not even when he started studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, on the contrary, he managed to make it the starting point, the solid basis for all his future works.
From the encounter between Przemysław and Marta was born DecodeTheCode, an artistic project that aims to create immersive installations that recreate and analyze the entire cosmos and make the viewer feel as if he was floating in the center of the universe.
The peculiarity of their works is that they are realized with the technique of String Art, which consists in creating a shape through the layering and intersection of colored wires. This process usually takes place on a single surface that can be a simple sheet or a board of plywood, but those signed by DecodeTheCode are on a completely different level. They are, in fact, installations that embrace entire rooms, completely filling the available space, enveloping the viewer who can experience them at 360 degrees.
