Tomasz Szrama: Survival

All in all I have not lost hope. My aim is to find a way to communicate, interact.

I want to realise all of my challenging ideas and complete each of my difficult projects. I believe that with my artistic output, as well as the help of my friends, I will survive any system or further natural disasters.
