Vistula Spit

         

(Teaser of the full project) "New World" is the name of the announced shipping channel, which is meant to split the Vistula Spit, but it is also a way of thinking. A policy full of catchwords about sovereignty, independence, dignity and tradition create the new world primarily on paper. Big plans and gigantomania serve to build identity and national myth, but rarely end with implementation. That's not their goal. The fact that a lot of these ideas are outdated and from the past may serve as evidence. Huge project costs often come with a threat to the environment and the local population. Despite this, ribbons are being cut, symbolic poles are stack to the ground, mock-ups are being shown. Flexing of muscles and dreaming dreams of national power do not end. And that's enough. There is no need for more. The story lives on.
The photographs show symbolic areas: areas for announced investments, fences and mock-ups. The project is accompanied by a video composed of press conferences.
