SEE THE CREATION OF ANALOG IMMIGRATION ON YOUTUBE.

The Sculpture Center is hosting our first artist-in-residence, Przemyslaw Jasielski of Poznan, Poland, through the Cleveland Foundation's Creative Fusion program. Przemyslaw is working with students and art professor Irina Koukhanova in the sculpture studio of Cleveland State University preparing a new installation, Analog Immigration, opening at The Galleries at Cleveland State University. Jasielski has also been honored by the Polish Studies of Cleveland State University as the Visiting Polish Scholar and is addressing Polish American groups in northeast Ohio during his residency.

Jasielski has created a room that blocks electromagnetic signals, rendering electronic devices useless inside of it. Entering this room is the Analog Immigration - a return to a world before digital devices.

Jasielski's work focuses on mixing elements of technology and art. Inspiration for this exhibition came from thinker Max Prensky, who grouped people into digital immigrants and digital natives - people born and raised without technology, and people born and raised in it. According to the artist, "Combining these two notions with the very present industrial character of this place I came up with the idea of 'Analog Immigration' - a specific back-in-time travel to the period when there were no digital devices."
