My facination with border stones started when I saw ancient hermai for the very first time. Inspired by the simplified, nearly abstract form of the greek sculptures (serving often as boundary markers or sign-posts) I created a small series of wood sculptures that could mark the entrance to different zones of imaginary, mythological world. Some of them were exhibited as a part of Gilgamesh series.

The Road That
Project is a retelling of the ancient, and unfortunately quite forgotten, Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest literary texts we know today. Within the project I designed website, set of illustrations and a letterpress-printed postcard. My images are accompanied by wonderful text (written by Marcin Mleczak) paraphrasing the original story.
