Marcin Rusak (born in 1987, Warsaw, Poland) is an artist and multidisciplinary designer interested in ideas of value, ephe- merality and aesthetics. Specializing in storytelling, process and material investigation his work often incorporates re- search, object and installation as well as visual creations to explore overlooked details of our lives which recreated and re-imagined are shown again in a different light.
As the son and grandson of ower growers he has long been fascinated by these natural sources of inspiration and decora- tion. Engaging them in his creative process began by reusing waste to investigate new decorative elements within every day objects and led to a rich body of work ranging from research and storytelling to cultural criticism around consumption and future scenarios.
