New Urban Legends is a project/workshop made by me and polish children from Warszawa. It is about magic reality they create living in a very poor environment. The color dreams, the future where everything is possible bland together with dark everyday live. I wanted to show their potential, skill to change gray playground into the fireman depot. Work with children is return to my childhood, where future was so far away, the were only the dreams.
