In my artistic journey, research has always been a cornerstone, intertwining deeply with my creative process. Since 2020, this pursuit has led me to academia, where I am delving into a PhD at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, focusing on the intersection of artificial intelligence and artistic practice. This academic endeavor enriches my work with profound insights and a rigorous understanding of AI's evolving role in the realm of art, allowing me to push the boundaries of creative expression and technological exploration.
Co-Creation w/ AI Algorithms: Participatory Perspectives to AI-Media Synthesis
The project explores the possibilities of collective participation in AI media synthesis in order to observe the impact of the generated AI outputs on human imagination and the creation of social imaginaries of the future through a series of expert workshops. Current "text-to-image" neural networks participate as a nonhuman entity in the process of collective negotiation of speculative future scenarios. Participatory methods of co-creation, reflexive artistic practice and analysis of synthetic collages will result in the creation of a fictional landscape of hybrid social imagination in the form of an audiovisual essay, a project documentation and a scholarly article.

The Visual Language of Real-Estate Projects in Bratislava’s Manhattan
This visual research analyzes visual language and strategies of real-estate developer companies, specifically the ones connected to the controversial development of the new city center of Slovakia’s capital Bratislava. It brings together visual research methods with critical and speculative design practice and explores innovative ways of communicating the research to the non-professional public.
