RIVER


Rivers are a living space for humans, animals, and plants, they are the source of life. They carry natural, cultural, aesthetic and utility values. They constitute an important element of the landscape, create the identity of the place, the country, the society. Looking at my own country, I went on a multi-step journey along the Vistula River, following river landscapes. I looked around for signs of identification with a river that could be a part of cultural identity.
I was looking for symbolicresources of people connected emotionally and professionally with the Vistula. On an interactive map, I designate every 50 kilometers from the source to the river mouth. I tried to reach the places marked on the map, but sometimes I stopped nearby, on the way. These small journeys were a kind of unhampered observation, a record of saving
a landscape that may disappear irretrievably.
