Robert B. LISEK is an artist, mathematician and composer who focuses on systems and processes (computational, biological, social). He is involved in the number of projects focused on radical art strategies, hacktivism and tactical media. Drawing upon conceptual art, software art and meta-media, his work intentionally defies categorization. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on AI and bioinformatics. He also explores the relationship between bio-molecular technology, code and issues arising from network technologies by combining his DNA code with codes of viruses and recently by testing influence of radioactive materials on biological entities.
Lisek is also a composer of contemporary music, author of many projects and scores on the intersection of spectral, stochatistic, concret music, musica futurista and noise. More: http://lisek.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/robert-b-lisek
Lisek is also a scientist who conducts a research in the area of foundations of science (mathematics and computer science). His research interests are theory of ordered sets in relation with logic, algebra and combinatorics. Lisek is also a researcher in the domain of artificial general intelligence and complexity theory. He examines, among others: problem of self-reference, mathematical induction, probabilistic techniques and recurrent AI self-improvement.
He is also working on human enhancement: extensions through the use of radical transgressive methods that arise at the intersection of disciplines such as AGI, bioengineering, and political and social sciences. He has prepared an short anthology entitled TRANSHUMAN.
Lisek is a founder of Institute for Research in Science and Art, Fundamental Research Lab and ACCESS Art Symposium. Author of many exhibitions and concerts, among others: NUCLEAR RANDOM GENERATOR - Fluc Wanne Vienna, TERROR ENGINES - WORM Center Rotterdam, Secure Insecurity - ISEA Istanbul; DEMONS - Venice Biennale (accompanying events); Manifesto vs. Manifesto - Ujazdowski Castel of Contemporary Art, Warsaw; NGRU - FILE, Sao Paulo; NEST - ARCO Art Fair, Madrid; Float - DMAC Harvestworks and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, NYC; WWAI - Siggraph, Los Angeles; Falsecodes - Red Gate Gallery, Beijing; Gengine - National Gallery, Warsaw; Flextex - Byzantine Museum, Athens, FXT- ACA Media Festival, Tokyo and ISEA, Nagoya.
The collection of recent projects and related with them strategies.
|NRE||Nuclear Random Engine is a project which utilize radioactive materials as Thorium for generating random light and sound impulses. The existing computing machines don't generate random sequences; the so called pseudo-generators of random numbers are periodic. This is why the project reaches quantum states which are highly randomized and can be used for generating random numbers.|
|ERS||ERS is an open collaborative research project, which investigates hidden physical processes occurring permanently in our everyday environment saturated by electromagnetic waves, especially ionic radiation.
The project investigates the effect of electromagnetic waves and ionic radiation on living organisms that is connected with the influence of this radiation on living cells.
|PRIME ENGINE||The work is a directed-energy 'weapon' that emits strong sound waves and laser light (electromagnetic radiation) rapidly propagated in a special gas inside a metal shipping container.|
|CAPITAL||The aim of the project was to build a multidimensional object comprising of my DNA code [collected from saliva] and codes of chosen viruses [Lloviu virus, Polio virus, Marburg virus and Ebola virus].|
|NEST||NE5T is an online platform for effective knowledge management in a complex environment of knowledge market.|
|SPECTRUM||SPECTRUM explores the relationship between bio-molecular and network technologies. The projectt aims to represent the self-replicating behavior of bacteria in order to draw out its wider bio-political significance in an imagined scenario of bioterrorism.|
|GGGRU Worm||GGGRU is a web worm that is spying and analyzing large data sets. The project is a social experiment that deals with hidden data, systems that reacts in a very short time and security panic. RARL is looking for data concerning bio-terrorism tactics, synthetic life, new bacteria, epidemic, across several agencies and companies.|
|CRASH||The project deals with the problem of intense processing of big data collections (including internet sites), data from innumerable sources, whose interpretation is clearly beyond human processing abilities.|
|MANIFESTO vs. MANIFESTO||Manifesto vs Manifesto — performance, concert, lecture, publication of Crash [Manifesto] and Italian Transhumanist Manifesto|
|TRANSHUMAN||The project deals with possible extensions of homo sapiens, as well as the overruns and related risks. Extensions through the use of radical artistic and transgressive methods that arise at the intersection of disciplines such as artificial intelligence, bioengineering, and political and social sciences.|
|GENGINE||The first part of project SUPRAMIND that aims to build a general-purpose intelligent system based on a visual inference engine which allows us to solve problems by extracting new information from existing.|
|FACE||The FACE is a portable knowledge management environment that can be used as a distributed network for creating, modeling and exchanging artistic concepts.|
|FLOAT||The FLOAT is an experimental collective software space, the multi user hyperstructure kit, the program equiped with ability of gathering information and learning during the interaction.|
|FLEXTEXT||FleXtexT is an original software (part of the art installation), which serves to create a flexible, dynamic and distributive textural space, by using attractors and a new kind of links based on the partially ordered sets .|
|STACK||The STACK is a collective, dynamical installation that allows small groups of participants to interact with virtual objects, and with each other|
|EL-CIPHER||The EL-CIPHER is a collection of cryptographic algorithms and protocols|
|Workshop||The workshop of sound and image construction|
|ACCESS noise||ACCESS #8 noise radio|
|Removal||hacking performance / removal of gallery|
|OLD stuff||The EL-CIPHER is a collection of cryptographic algorithms and protocols|
