Aleksandra Borys is an art and science artist working in fields of choreography, astronomy, cosmology and ecology. Her work looks at the human body, environment, Earth, Universe and asks what kind of choreography and dance happens between them. Interested in looking at Earth from a distance, she wonders how this perspective changes the way life on our planet is approached. She wonders what are the concepts of ecological art, of art as an activism, choreography as an art for creating contemporary social ceremonies to help individuals deal with changes of the Earth,
