    "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song" (J.W. Anglund, A Cup of Sun, 1967)
    BACKGROUND INFO:
    Kropka Na Ogonie - Polish for Dot On The Tail - is about the visual beauty of written language and how from writing gestures and the art of engraving you can create a sonic and a visual composition. Graffiti and calligraphy form an important source of inspiration, as well as the shape of the Polish alphabet and its diacritics ( a.o. kropka . and ogonie ̨).
    Soroka Fruwa - Polish for Magpie Is Flying - is about body language and non verbal communication with the human child and birds as archetypes.
