Influenced an intense immersion into the refugee situation, the idea of ​​a Silent Comics was born. Wyspa tells its story only by the help of pictures. The renunciation of language makes it internationally understandable and accessible to a wide audience. The characters are imaginary beings which does not allow any assignment to a real existing people or ethnics.

Wyspa tells the story of an involuntary departure of a group of imaginary beings. One day, an unknown dread from the sea threatens the creatures and forces them to flee. The group gets separated and the narration focusses on a single and its struggle for existence until the reunion with its relatives.

The Silent Comic Wyspa was born on a cutting mat. Each visual element was cut out of a colored paper and what was combined with the collage technique to form a pictorial statement. The narrative covers 44 pages. The project was both designed for an exhibition and a book production.
