Jakub Pišek graduated from New Media in Košice having been led by Anna Tretter, a German artist. He took an internship at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux, France and a residential stay in Dortmund in RUHR, the European Capital of Culture 2011. After a ping-pong workshop, he started to create his own software for interactive installations. In his work, he uses the technique as both the carrier and the objective of his interest. Instead of repeatedly presenting old works, he specializes in creating an artwork right in the spot, he lets the genius loci stand out and flexibly responds to the situations that emerge. He works with video, computer graphics, interactivity and music. He now works as a media artist in various spheres such as interactivity, performance, audio and video or live graphics. As he studied visual and performing arts, software prototypes and computer science, interdisciplinarity is characteristic of his work. He uses open source hardware and software and prefers the DIY approach. Jakub is the person behind famous performances such as Hallogenerator, Turbosampler and Barcode djs.
