*About the speaker*: Born in communist Czechoslovakia where he was identified as an artistic talent at a young age, Michal Rezanka's family emigrated several years after the Soviet invasion in 1968, ultimately travelling by ship to New York Harbor. He continued to developed his artistic talents. He studied at SUNY Stony Brook, first engineering and then fine arts with some of the great contemporary artists. After university, he continued to work in art and technology in and around NYC before moving to Seattle and finally returning to the Czech Republic in 1997. He has been an integral part of the Central & Eastern European (CEE) Internet scene from since that time to the present and has a unique view of that history. During that time he has worked mostly in web related fields.
*About the talk*: Michal Rezanka will talk about the lack of artistic consideration in today's website design, arguing that the commercialization and mass production of websites has resulted in a serious loss to their quality and to the more general experience of Internet users. He'll make the case that websites can and should be artistic expressions, and that by taking this perspective website designers and website owners will produce more powerful, effective, and memorable websites.
