Tomáš Mládek

Hello! I like to connect things and work together with computers.

In the past, I've done art installations, VJ'd on various occasions (from all-night raves to acoustic folk) and provided technical backing (live sound, video, live streaming, etc.) for all sorts of events, notably the Prague Microfestival. I've also been a speaker on topics broadly concerning psychology (in particular, lucid dreaming - a talk I first gave in 2012, but ended up repeating at least a dozen times throughout the years), philosophy, and the internet - that is, the dynamics of online communities, and the emergence of new aesthetics. Most of this has been as a part of /-\ (sdbs), or in collaboration with the Diffractions Collective.

My interests revolve around aleatoric art (a term I prefer to "procedural" or "generative" art, as one doesn't necessarily always cede control to the process or a procedure), human-computer interaction (especially tools for thought) and psychology, in which I have a Bachelor's degree, and from which I'm most interested in psychoanalysis, sleep and dreams.

I'm working on UpEnd. It's a hypertextual graph database, and the aim is to do away with the limits of hierarchies, the inability of current software to meaningfully relate information, and broadly, to expand the range of the expressible. I also work at Superface, trying to transform the way people build and connect software via APIs.

Shoot me a message at!
