Instant photographs are taken as a documentation of the experience, of the island of the City Cork bounded by the river Lee. This series is a reflection of how our mind records spontaneous scenes. The second series of photographs were made using a medium format camera, and this series reflects a more considered and thoughtful slowdown view or understanding. Sawicka allows process to dictate engagement while exploring perception of experience. For Sawicka's first semester in Cork, while staying in a hostel, she walked the streets of the City Cork to avoid being in the atmosphere of the hostel and to find her connection to Cork. These images are contemplating that initial encounter with Cork City.
