BABEL

ARTIST: OSKAR (OK) KRAJEWSKI

L 75 cm x W 70 cm x H 130 cm WEIGHT 50 kg
MATERIALS:
Computer parts, insulation foam, fiber optic, LED
DESCRIPTION:
‘Babel’ is a revived metaphor, a tale told over 2000 years ago.
The story gains its meaning once again with our pursuit for knowledge.
Computers serve as a portal to it and we are building denser and more tangled web.
The more complex wive, the closer to understanding of ourselves, the world around and eventually everything.
But can we sustain the growth for long enough, before it collapses under its own weight?
Will we find that one global language and progress in peace?
This sculpture is made of the obsolete mother boards and parts of machines which couldn’t keep up with it’s maker-human.

: ABOUT THE ARTIST

Oskar (OK) Krajewski 

Born in 1979 in Poland. Studied in Academy of Fine Arts, Lodz, Poland. Living and working in London, UK since 2002. So far, OK has exhibited over 15 times (group and solo) in London and beyond. Under the “OK” brand there are several freelancers helping with the artistic concepts and projects. The main activities of OK are Sculptures, (conceptual) Photography, Video, Installation, Paintings & Drawings.

“I invest my time in solid and complex creations, thought-provoking and interactive. My inspiration comes from visions, dreams, technological and spiritual studies and practice. In my latest creations I have attempted to merge these fields of knowledge and experience. My art is to intrigue, to please the viewer’s eye and to provoke thoughts. One of my main goals and wishes is to influence general public so they are more drawn to art (not only mine of course). There is only an elite awareness about what is happening in the art world today. Through Art, I would like to convey the message about importance of the subconsciousness and connection to nature and oneself. On more physical level, I feel that one of my main missions in the art world is to find the end spectrum for the detailed composition. I have to express myself through Art – I could not live a healthy wholesome life without letting it flow through me.” – OK
