Varia is a series of five books created for the Library of the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Science at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (PL), with partnership from the Faculty of Graphic Arts at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (PL). In collaboration with Zofia Szczęsna.
From the intro text: “I am motivated by the philosophical parallels between a scientist and an artist, ultimately exploring the emotional experience of human communication and connection. Szczęsna’s approach is more an act of translation of pure astrophysical research into visual artworks. One looks up and out to the cosmos, the other looks within and across the terrestrial plane. Both of us work to connect ideas between curiosity, knowledge, time, and space. We look up and out to look in.”
