Filips Staņislavskis (Rīga/Berlin) 


Observe, speculate and care are approaches that encompass all activities of this web(page). I like to think of my projects as tools and mirrors for critical self-reflection, nudging the viewers towards questioning the habitual. This work is an attempt to facilitate moments that aspire for a revision of attitude through humorous gestures and response-ability in a world of complex, constantly reconfiguring entanglements. Besides my personal work, you will find here links to projects done by the design-art collective Nonhuman Nonsense that I am part of.
