The digital photo collage 'Arton 1' refers to Polish artist Włodzimierz Borowski, born in 1930, and his series of Artons from 1959 to 1963. Włodzimierz Borowski played an important role for the Polish avant-garde movement. From the 1950s, he turned away from painting and devoted himself to sculpture, installation and performance. In 1959 the Artons appeared in his works, objects made of various materials, living organisms that also served as props in his performances.
