Ján Šicko is active as both researcher and content creator in the fields of visual communication and new media. Except his graphic design and new media work, he is also leading the Medialab at Bratislava’s Academy of Arts. The aim of the Medialab is to investigate the nontraditional and extreme manifestations of graphic design. In his “free” time he does animations, live visuals or interactive installations. His works were awarded various prizes home and abroad.
His ToolKid project is an example of the use of a game engine as an artistic tool for creating live visuals.
