In 1970-71 she worked on her diploma consisting of approx. 500 slides in a simultaneous projection on three screens. Polymorphous narrative motifs were accumulating in a logical structure of sequences.
From 1971, in an artistic duet with Przemyslaw Kwiek as KwieKulik, they ran an independent Studio for Art Activities, Documentation and Propagation in their private apartment in Warsaw. Its archives contain slides and negatives of ephemeral art in Poland of seventies, and prints and artists books.
