Only Those Who Planned It Will Survive

by Piotr Wyrzykowski

The idea of the installation is based on the development of a form of "video-poster", which appeared in the installation "Communostalgie". The video is treated here as a graphical dynamic visual element of the whole compositions. In that case technical drawing and typography is combine with video of little child figures.
The work consists of six posters depicting six different types of shelters designed as a place to hide during a nuclear attack. Architectural solutions are taken from the original American publications from the period of cold war. They were mainly aimed at families with their own free-standing houses proposing a variety of types of solutions from low-budget basement conversions to reinforced concrete underground structures.
Each of the posters is a standalone short story scene of the group of children's life in shelter. A short excerpt from their attempts to maintain "normal" in such different conditions.
