Jacek Smolicki (b.1982, Kraków) is a cross-media artist, designer, researcher and “walker” who works at the intersection of aesthetics, technology, memory, and everyday life. He explores how transformations of communication, recording, and computing technologies have been affecting aesthetic, material, performative, and ethical aspects of archiving and memory practices, historically and at the present moment. In his design and art practice, besides engaging with existing archives and heritage, Smolicki develops new techniques for experiencing, documenting, remembering, and para-archiving human and other-than- human environments. In parallel to these activities, for the last several years he has been committed systematic experimentation with various recording techniques and technologies leads to a construction of a multifaceted para-archive of contemporary everyday life, culture, and environment (On-Going Project). One such practice is the archiving of one-minute field recordings executed every day since July 2010. He has exhibited, presented his works, performed, soundwalked, and gave workshops internationally (e.g. Madrid, Moscow, Helsinki, Stockholm, San Francisco, Budapest, Vienna, Sarajevo) to a set of documentary practices in which a systematic experimentation with various recording techniques and technologies leads to a construction of a multifaceted para-archive of contemporary everyday life, culture, and environment (On-Going Project).
