‘Deep in the Image’
Hallands Konstmuseum

In the project 'Deep in the Image' microscopic water samples from Nissan turns into a stop motion animation by Aga Jarzabowa, Maciej Baczyk with music by Pin Park.

Sound can manifest itself in many different ways.. What happens if you go down to the depth of Nissan's water?

As KinoManual – a small independent audiovisual manufacture focused on experiments with moving pictures and sound – we were looking for a way to show this specific environment, which is similar all over the world, and at the same time a little bit different in each place.

Our idea for the story of the Nissan River was associated with our desire to look at the reality in a large magnification. We wanted to combine the aqeous micro-world with the miniature space of a single 16mm film frame.

We will look at the microscopic images of water samples from the Nissan River. These images will become the specific material for our film.

Preparation of the slide for viewing under a microscope is like preparing a single frame of film. You need a dish with a drop of organic material covered with small coverslip. In our experiment, the Nissan River will provide organic material while a single film frame will be used as a coverslip. The organic and cinematic realities will merge to create the space for improvisation and experimentation deep in the image.


We are KinoManual, small, independent, audiovisual manufacture focused on experiments with moving pictures and sound. We are digging into analog stop motion technics such as: draw animation, cut-out, direct filmmaking.

We are looking for pure analog sound using old fashion gears, field recordings and optical sounds. What we most enjoy is simple, manual and sensual contact with material we are using during whole audio-visual process.

Maciek Bączyk

Born in 1977, Poland, Maciek Bączyk lives and works in Wroclaw.

A graduate of Cultural Studies at the University of Wrocław, Bączyk works with sound and image in practice and in theory; he has performed and recorded with bands such as AGD, Robotobibok and his current band, Małe Instrumenty. At the moment he is working on his solo project _N_A__G___R____A_____ , using a NAGRA tape recorder. In 2006 his first exhibition "Invisible Map of Wroclaw" was held at the Awangarda Gallery, Wrocław, Poland. The project resulted in the publication of the first city guide of Wrocław made by the blind citizens of the city. He closely collaborates with the Entropia Gallery in Wrocław where he presents most of his works. In his
theoretical work he looks for sound hidden in images and images hidden in sound waves and structures.

Maciek Baczyk and Maciek Polak, are playing the legendary analog synthesizers, British
EMS to the animation ‘Deep in the Image’. In their improvised music Pin Park focuses on obtaining optimal sound and forms using two modular instruments Synthi AKS. The musicians are guided by the spirit of minimalism and experiment.
