I'm developing artistic research using Artificial Intelligence Software. The current outcome is an artwork with science fiction storytelling, distinct from a typical science fiction narration, and two symbolic pictures about life and death. It appears in the form of a printed book and a file. The title comes partially from Philip K. Dick's biography, and the theme is related to Karel Čapek, two science fiction classics authors. I am working with AI-powered chatbots. The problem for me is that this kind of software interacts by imitating human language. This attitude of imitation impacted Western art for a long time. Then, it was challenging for me to work with a language-imitating tool. I asked the chatbot to create a new language to break the imitation effect. The theme is at the intersection of imitation and sympathy through technologies and social implications. Tell me more about Creating a New Language: Impossible. (et vous êtes) artistic research.
A sentence from a well-known text of anthropology and personal communications as feedback related to my work "Good to eat (fragment)" suggested me an idea about the suitability of artworks. I developed research and artwork within the frame of food studies, ritual, and mythology. In the background, one can find ideas of command and obedience strictly connected to my common thread of the system of rules. Tell me more about Good to eat (fragment) artistic research.
A human community is a symbiotic entity. The Internet, a digital community, is a layer of the broad human community. Despite the rationality behind Information Technologies, the Internet outcome is often emotional. The hate speech online phenomenon is a kind of emotion spread on the Internet. I’m working on a series of artwork around these themes. I developed a data-driven art engine based on a late XVI-century cryptography method to produce images and sounds. Likewise, I worked with a file destruction technique on some picture files. Tell me more about Symbiotic Violence artistic research.
"To make landfall" is an artwork about fuel transportation. I used walking as an art practice entangled with information technologies in this work. How the fuel transportation affects people? How it impacts global issues between nations? Which questions raise about the population that have no availability of fuel? How can art frame this topic to produce artworks? Tell me more about To make landfall artistic research.
“I (don't) know the spell” explores our inner border between ration and emotion through the lens of Internet technologies, posing questions on the dividing line between the performance art and the magic act. In this work, I used walking as an art practice. For my performance, I cast a spell according to instructions in an old manuscript of magic. Then I broadcast my action on Instagram in a temporary account that I will delete after after a few hours. The idea is to model a collision between magical thinking and the world of information technologies built upon rational frameworks. Tell me more about I (don't) know the spell artistic research.
"Aesthetic Regulations" is an art installation of three objects. Refusing the idea of creating the objects themselves, showing a craftspeople's skill, I developed the artwork by assembling two existing things. I put these two things "in contrast" as function and essence. I used a slice of decorative wood bought in a DIY store and police barricade tape. Tell me more about Aesthetic regulations artistic research.
Is it possible to change the rules of a game through the same game's rules? Playing, you cannot break the rules. But if you are allowed to change the rules, you can easily break the rules by rule. And if someone disagrees, you can always say that's the rule. Tell me more about Reorder power structures artistic research.

It is an artwork about identity fragmentation and the perception of the body through Internet technologies. The context is about cities in different time zones.

Tell me more about Achilles and Tortoise artistic research.
The concept of this work is the possibilities to shape social changes.
