Little Xeno-Chemistry:
(If The Bot Was a Socialist)
//Když by byl bot socialista
2018 - Simulation (C # in Unity)

The LX-Ch has two parallel layers. The first layer is appropriation / modification of the text Civilization at the Crossroads (R. Richta et al 1966), with a high occurrence of the word "society", which I replaced with string "Artificial Intelligence", thereby creating an uncanny dehumanizing atmosphere. Human is still present in the text, but the goal is the development of the machine.

Given the time of the Civilization at the Crossroads (1966), the book shows typical links about the development of socialist society, replaced by socialist artificial intelligence. Thus, not only is the text updated, today's technological and social debate, but also the subversive question after the process of dehumanization. The question of what happens if we discard society completely from discourse about human and civilization.

The second layer of LX-Ch is a reference to generated gaming environments. Where we generate our own map of the world (Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Empires, etc..). Two screens count the generation of the world and the generation of society. The number is infinitely approaching 100% over time, according to the hyperbolic function: :*x)%2F(x+%2B+100)+from+0+to+3600 where x are seconds. The image is created in c # in the Unity engine. Conceptually, I chose an image that is live, created with the help of the game engine, but completely removes the viewer's interaction or input.

Hd Video 38 min.
Six takes of my friends, playing military simulation Arma. I have made three different game scenarios derived from my idea of battle. Each take ends with death of a friend.

Rooms / Pokoje 2015

Installation is composed of spatial drawing of archetypal room (Iron construction in dimensions 400 cm x 220 cm x 220 cm), video screened on tow canvas and three channel audio with ambient takes from six rooms of mine friends, six interviews and ambient take from my window.

Video is a collage of takes of the rooms where six of my friends live in, it is composed to form abstract labyrinth which resembles archetypal house. In the interwievs I asked several questions about the place in the private rooms, where my friends stay most of the time. The answers form only orientation in the space and time of the installation. Answers go mostly like this: „I stay mainly in my bed. .. It‘s natural place to be.“ or „I may, I may have no specified place...“

Orientation is shattered by asynchronous time (audio in the headphones, video projected on canvas). The viewer is forced to thread his own story and spatial concept of the house. All the articles in the single rooms have a strong personal context connected with their hidden residents.
