Sigur Rós

Valtari - Dauðalogn - Mystery Film Experiment videoclip entry, 2012

Two lonely people appear on calm dreamy island. They are both blind, so they do not know about each other. They are walking and climbing around the island and exploring the unknown environment. Discovering new feelings by touching and hitting everything around. Their curiosity is stronger than blindness, so finally they discover each other, stay together and become a part of nature element of the island. Read more.

UNHCR

Advertising campaign for the UNHCR refugee agency, 2012

The main idea is based on "IKEA style" furniture catalogues. Just instead of item's prices, the numbers mean something different - statistics.

Social Media Mandala

Interactive generative art, 2013 (ongoing)

A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol of eastern religions, mainly Hinduism and Buddhism. Mandalas usually illustrate the universe and its geometric balance or harmony. The social media mandala project uses online participation by an audience and creates experimental visual material – so called mandalas of the digital civilisation. The software visualises ‘posts’ – data from participants sent by the group of fans on the Facebook social network – in the shape of a mandala. Each mandala is unique and leaves time-spatial digital traces of participants – co-creators of the works. Post something on FB & become a part of the artwork.

Slovak Pinocchio

Activistic website, 2013

The legendary fairy tale of Pinocchio and his miraculous nose is perhaps known to everyone. Pinocchio was created as a wooden puppet in a small Italian village by carver Geppetto, who dreamed that one day his creation will turn into a real boy. The story of fictional Pinocchio is known to the public mainly because of the wooden Pinocchio's nose, which grows when he lies or misleads. Now it is time to transform this story on real people - Slovak politicians, who are responsible for our state. SlovenskyPinocchio.EU is visualizing in real-time freely available data of Slovak politicians listed on the website in the form of a growing nose.

Art Installations

#1 Because of me (2010)
Modified (sensors, speakers) chopped woods were installed in the park. Sounds of chainsaw were played in loop as a last memory / crying of the chopped trees until the unaware curious people entered the instalation as activists and stopped the music - Without people and their individual approach to activism, anything won't be solved and the woods will be cutted down forever.
#2 Change a role (2009)
It is very common that the politicians usually work with masses of people and control them like dolls in dolls-theater. In my installation the visitor can "change a role" and control (with the movements of body) a famous slovak nationalistic politician and dance with him in the style of hungarian twist.
