Polish artist Andrzej Wasilewski construes electronic objects/installations, creates video-generated and painted images and designs, and records sounds. In the past 15 years of his creative work, he has built dozens of complex objects and electrical installations, from classic DIY structures to primitive creations to internet-derived models to programmable digital design.
In his work, Wasilewski makes sure to escape the trap of new-toy fascination; instead, he always tries to address the critical aspect of prosthetic technology, thereby giving it a more universal significance as a carrier of content. His realisations touch on the issues of selfishness and narcissism, the creation of cultural fetishes, and seduction by artificial and fictional icons. He documents processes of destruction and observes the passage of time. He is interested in the undesirable, embarrassing side of life, exclusion and provinciality. He uses electronic devices: motion sensors, photocells, control microchips, LCDs and LEDs, oscilloscopes, as well as wailing or humming devices, or those generating subliminal sounds not received by the human ear but registered in the subconscious. Recently, he has constructed high-voltage objects based on the inventions of Nikola Tesla.
