Shadows have become a refuge for animistic and primordial beliefs that have not been assimilated by humans. This idea is supported by biologist David Attenborough, who states that there are no places unaffected by human presence, except for the ocean floor. Therefore, ancient ghosts and legends have adapted by hiding in the shadows created by humans, seeking refuge in dark spaces like caves and abandoned houses. Kawecki's work focuses on capturing these inaccessible worlds in the setting of Nowa Ruda and its underground.
