Seven reeds, one suit / Siedem nitek, jedno ubranie

Running time: 11'

The narrator is spinning a tale about a miracle, describing the mysterious processes that the viewer is witnessing. Here, in majestic buildings – fabric factories – as a result of a chemical storm, dark machines make art silk out of bamboo cane. The scientists’ genius, the workers’ diligence, and the technological progress make incredible things happen – mud-covered bamboo turns into a beautiful dress. A “miracle” happened, but for what price? Caprice of the wealthy costs the labourers many hours of hard work in difficult conditions.
