Martin Lacko, who’s currently working towards his thesis in the studio of Vladimír Skrepl and Jan Šerých at Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts, has been keeping himself occupied with the fantastic genre on a long-term basis. Through narrative paintings or digital drawings, he hints at the genre’s depiction mainly in video games – a medium he consequently took up himself and also started programming actively. The main narrative almost always features exlusively female heroines.

Enjoy a slightly oozy interview with the author.
“Many microbiologists argue that we should start thinking of humans as microbial ecosystems or multispecies collectives.” Charlie Spies’ Gutopia animations playfully and intimately explore the dividual on the backdrop of a late capitalist society still riddled with archaic stereotypes and rigid knowledge-creation processes.
What do a flock of starlings and generative design have in common? Why does chaotic movement fascinate and unsettle us at the same time? And how can we tell if we're watching a real video or a screensaver? In her article, Bára Čápová reflects on the similarities between the natural movement of animal flocks and herds and algorithmic digital images.
