about 2046

    Intro:

    My name is 2046. I’m an artist and freelancer – if you will.

    Statement:

    There are basically two aspects of my work. First, I believe that the most important “thing” in our live is the time. Time is important, because it is a volume we can fill up with feelings. Nothing else matters, everything else is substitutable.

    Second, because I do not believe that anything like so called author (or owner) exists, all the fruits of my work are open and free for all who wants to perceive it in any way {except some works which are under Aggressive Copyright naturally}. Based on my experience and aforementioned aspects I have decided to work on projects that either ignite my (our) feelings or extend my (our) perception. I do music, the only thing that has the power to change my mind without intention. I do interactive applications and interfaces between human and devices to extend my ways of receiving further impulses. And I keep it free and open because none of it intrinsically belongs to me only.

    Bio:

    At first I went through designer school at Škoda and right away started to study Traditional painting techniques studio at Academy of Fine Arts Prague. After two years I changed interest in digital world and moved to New media studio where I stayed till the end of my study. In 2006 I studied also at San Francisco Art Institute heading to grasp as much as I could in the field of digital media and media study. I meet there people such as John Phillips and M.C. Schmidt as well as Fausto from Shirley & Spinoza who have strong impact on my ongoing work.

    As an artist, I work on interactive applications and interfaces between human and non human devices. My last work concentrates on public media itself and I naturally work with and support Open Source ideas.
    In 2004 my attitude drove me to be an technical assistant at New media studio at Academy of Fine Arts Prague where I used to be a tutor in the digital media field. I also taught my favorite Open Source program Blender on the Charles University, Faculty of Education. At the same time worked with company Alien technik (Deymed) as an Biofeedback game developer and cooperates with Millenium Gate Company on several interactive projects.

    In the fall of 2007 I quit my job on Academy of Fine Arts Prague where I used to work as a tech. assistant.  We (I and the major part of students) left the studio, because of the new dep. head and they way he gets on.
    Since 2006 I’m giving from time to time lectures in Digital laboratory at Academy of Fine Arts Prague in the field of Internet publishing platforms and game development. As a consequence of all that I kept working on my radio MONKEY ON THE ORB and Artycok.tv.
    With my great friend Erik Sikora we have established alternative sound group ne I in it’s terms we try to improvise in utmost possible way. Later with Nikola Brabcova we unite in the Nikola 2046 band.
    I also work for the Auto*Mat, which seams to be an ideal step auto off the gallery space to the real life. Not long ago I worked as a sound technician for The Forman Brother’s Theatre on “their” last piece Un beau matin, Aladin. Recently I teach so called Interactive media on Prague College and keep inventing on my restored Petrof grand piano!

    Beside that I do build tons of websites (2046.cz).
