Description by Filmoteka Muzeum

Since the 1970s, Robakowski has been experimenting with the category of the author, transferring the authorship of his works onto the film camera.

Implementing the strategy of biological-mechanical records, Robakowski continues his experiments, carried out since the 1970s, consisting in the transfer of the authorship of the film onto the film camera, as well as initiates relations between the mechanical medium and the human organism. On the one hand, it embraces collaboration, on the other, human struggle with the machine, extending from the “integration” of its logic and the attempts at its „anthropomorphisation”.
