A performative piece WAYS AND MEANS TO GET OUT!! was executed during a group art event TO BE DESTROYED at 25 Soho Square, London on 5th November 2010.

The WAYS AND MEANS TO GET OUT!! project included following elements: a wall painting incorporated 300 plastic cards (dimensions of the painting - w: 640cm, h:161cm), a portable printer, a mobile phone with a photo-camera, 3 blank sheets of paper and the wall slogan ‘Get yo pass’.

Anyone entering the room could choose one card which allowed her/him to get out of the building (there was a guard on the door collecting the cards). Once the person picked up the card the visitor name and the number was written down on the pass. All female visitors were JANE, all male visitors were JHON. The track of the visitors- the name and the number- was written down on a sheet of paper. Selected randomly visitors get opportunity to print out and stick their photo to the pass. From 300 cards 134 had been taken form the wall painting and only 36 of them returned. The rest, 98 cards, left the building and presumably they drift in Great London area.

Below are photos showing how the WAYS AND MEANS TO GET OUT!! project looks right now. The current state consists of a wall painting with 300 plastic cards mounted with a white tack or masking tape.
During the TO BE DESTROYED event those cards will be peel off and issue to the visitors. Some will be even lucky to get a photographic portrait printed on them. By removing the cards a new pattern will be created in the field of the painting.

The New Museum in New York hosts an exhibition called “Younger than Jesus” (April - July 2009). The show presents 50 artists from 25 countries. All of them were born after 1976. In conjunction with the show the museum’s resource centre has created the Live Archive- the presentation of selected independent publications, books related to the to the exhibition and the timeline that lists historical and cultural events from 1976 to 2009.
One of the books presented in the Live Archive is Prismatic Syntax by Waldemar Pranckiewicz. This small publication interlaces surreal images with photographs related to astronomy. There are a few plots in the book: violence, unclarity of meaning, ambiguity and interaction between elements of different images. In the broad sense this book is about subtle connections and configurations of a visual syntax.
Prismatic Syntax is available form the Miligram website and from the following places: Donlon Books, London | Raster Gallery, Warsaw | Motto, Berlin.
