It is a real time system, which encompasses movement of performative cycles of transmission/reception and programming trough modulation of electric and magnetic energies, allowing for modification of the dynamics of space.

I am not interested in optical illusion of three dimensions. I explore and express multi-dimensionality by manipulating slices and projections of multi-dimensional manifolds e.g.: 2d submanifolds of 4d space and 3d slices of 5-dimensional knotted objects. I research classes of embeddings, isotopies and energy of knots. When I am working with knotted manifold I examine large data set and functions that can destruct this manifold.

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 crital 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.
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.
