He is involved in a number of projects focused on media art, creative storytelling and interactive art. Drawing upon post‐conceptual art, software art and meta‐media, his work intentionally defies categorization. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Lisek is also a composer of contemporary music, author of many projects and scores on the intersection of spectral, stochastic, concret music, musica futurista and noise. Lisek is also a scientist who conducts research in the area of foundations of science ﴾mathematics and computer science﴿. His research interests are category theory and high‐order algebra in relation to artificial general intelligence. Lisek is a founder of Fundamental Research Lab and ACCESS Art Symposium.
