Agata Adamus

author biographical note degree piece

My degree project inspired by Jacek Dukaj’s book Wroniec is a record of a search for the world existing in between memory and imagination. The challenge was to find a visual equivalent for the dreamy story of a boy named Adam. My main design determinant was his perception transforming the reality of the martial law and bringing various monster creatures to life. My goal was to create an integrated, visually consistent film set design.
