Jacek Smolicki, Stockholm based new media artist and designer holds his MFA degrees from Design Faculty at the Art Academy in Krakow, Interdisciplinary Studies at Konstfack University of Art, Craft and Design in Stockholm and Sound Art from Academy of Dramatic Arts in Stockholm.
In his practical and theoretical work Smolicki focuses on studying the use of new media tools, locative technology and database in archival and documentary practices. For last several years he has been developing a number of ongoing practices of archiving and documenting 'the self ' in relation to 'the public'. His works include recording and mapping occasional and permanent soundscapes as well as acoustic spaces created by street musicians, analysis of urban choreography and his own behavioral patterns recorded by the wearable GPS device, reauthorization of public situations through reflective and metaphorical interpretation, creative writing inspired by the weekly ritual of searching for objects lost in the public space. From September 2013 Smolicki will be enrolled in the PhD programme ¨Living Archives¨ at the Malmö University.
