Racially motivated extremism, its manifestations and perception of students of the second level of elementary schools
The subject of this bachelor's thesis is racially-motivated extremism, how it is perceived and expressed by students of lower secondary school. The theoretical part of the thesis defines radicalization and extremism both being serious and dangerous socially-pathological phenomenon. Further, the extremism typology is explained as well as its main forms and other important terms connected to extremism. Another important term described in the theoretical part of my thesis is racially motivated extremism, which is the extreme form of extremism. Its consequences and possible preventive measures are mentioned here. The empirical part of my thesis compares facts established in the theoretical part with the results of empirical research, realized by questionnaire survey. The respondent group consisted of sixth and seventh grade students in both Vodňany Elementary School and Vodňany Grammar School. Finally, the empirical part analyses nation-wide and local preventive programs.
Changes In Properties Of Perovskite Solar Cells During Their Lifetime
Dvořák, Tomáš
This paper deals with the problematics of perovskite solar cells, which can be the next generation of photovoltaic solar cells. The objectives of this research are to analyse changes in perovskite solar cells. For measurements of electrical properties were used various methods such as I-V characteristic, intensity modulated photovoltage spectroscopy and dependence of photocurrent on light intensity. Measurements indicate considerable changes of performance, which resulted from aging of perovskite solar cells. Results suggest deeper observation of perovskite solar cells.
Camereless Violence
Laytadze, Lali ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (advisor) ; ŠIMŮNEK, Michal (referee)
The code assigned to the subject, entering into interactive environment, is setting and determining its future existence. In the virtual environment, the absence of a numerical description makes a subject untrackable. Only by assigning a unique code does the affair begin to exist for the computing world. After receiving the code, the subject somehow comes to life, becoming recognisable, categorised, searchable - possessing existence. Every environment we are situated in can be perceived as panned and scanned. Cameraless photography, we meet in a moment of our existence, in an artificial space. We are scanning and at the same time we are being scanned. In the process of scanning and taking pictures, what part is the human playing? A person who can be seen as a tool of cameraless photography? Is he following the rules, or creating them? Or, is he himself a tool to the process of cameraless photography? Is he the individual who determines and recognizes the point that is set for the existence and meaning of cameraless photography?
The Aesthetic of the Crime Scene Photography: The Case of Arthur “Weegee” Fellig
Sharova, Taisiia ; ŠIMŮNEK, Michal (advisor) ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (referee)
The forensic photography has a great practical significance as it serves as one of the main means of capturing theinitial appearance of the crime scene and physical evidence of various objects that have evidentiary value in criminal cases. Photography as a means of permanent, authentic, accurate and objective record of the reality thus very often plays pivotal role during criminal investigations and court proceedings. For these purposes, crime scene photography has to follow particular set of conventionalised rules, techniques and methods. The present thesis aims to describe the crime scene visual rhetoric and explain how the crime scene photography aesthetic has been co-opted by photojournalism and art. The argumentation of the thesis is based mainly on the analysis of the 1930s and 1940s photographs taken by tabloid-news photographer Arthur “Weegee” Felling.

In my thesis I want to explore the Slovenian contemporary photographic art focusing on the youngest artists who have recently graduated art schools and have started developing a new strain of fine art photography in Slovenian artistic space. Slovenia, not having a photography programme on any of it's art academies until recently, was always under influence of countries where Slovenian photography artists have studied, that being mainly Czech Republic and Serbia in the 90s and mainly UK, Germany, The Netherlands or France nowadays - the difference in the aesthetical and generally artistic expression is obvious. While most of the countries in Eastern Europe have seemingly lost the connection with the contemporary fine art scene, especially on the photographic field in the time of the post-digital art, Slovenia has kept it or rather gained it through the influence of its artists mainly studying abroad in the most developed western countries and not in Slovenia itself. On the other hand, the Slovenian photography scene has encountered an enormous problem as the artists studying abroad do not return to their motherland after finishing their studies - a trend that has gained on influence and popularity mainly in the last five years and is now almost becoming normality. The question therefore is if those artists can be counted as Slovenian or not at all, as example Aleksandra Vajd, who is one of the most influential Slovenian photography artists and at the same time one of the first ones who stayed in the country of her studies.
The face as an index
Helcel, Oskar ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (advisor) ; ŠIMŮNEK, Michal (referee)
The bachelor´s thesis Face as an index deals with the relationship between man and machine. It exam-ines this issue through the phenomenon of face recognition technology and its connections with the context of mass surveillance. In the first part, the author introduces the reader to the psychological and brain processes that are associated with facial recognition. Further, on concrete examples of neurosci-ence research associated with these processes, he shows a connection with the development of machine recognition of the face. . In the part about dealing with the historical connotations of the development of face recognition technology, the author discusses the key moments that lead to its implementation into practice. The issue of the database, the change of the technological principle and the relation between the private and the public sector in connection with the use of the above mentioned technology is examined by the author in the next chapter reflecting its state in the last few years. In the last part of the thesis, he reflects the relationship between man and machine through artistic projects focusing on the human face and the phenomenon of machine vision.
Stanislav Sucharda – photography and sculpture
Šemíková, Petra ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (advisor) ; LEDVINA, Josef (referee)
This work focuses on a photographic archive of a czech sculptor Stanislav Sucharda (1866-1916). Stanislav Sucharda was one of the leaders of modern Czech sculpture. The aim of the work is to investigate and analyze a part of the private fund related to photographic reproductions of Sucharda's sculptures and work. The collection shows a wide range of photographic techniques and materials. Counting both glass negatives and plastic negatives, photographic positive techniques including albumen prints, colloid prints and various types of silver-gelatin prints. On negatives and positives there are secondary interventions. There are framing, varnish, retouching or photocollages. The photo collection is not classified according to any code, chronological or thematic distribution is missing. The aim will be trying to find links between sculpture models and photographs. Determining the purpose for which the photographs were taken should create a mosaic of Stanislav Sucharda's work with photographs. I would like to compare this archive with archives in art institutions, which have photographs associated with Stanislav Sucharda in their funds. On the basis of the research, the thesis will be confirmed or refuted that this part of the private-owned photographical collection of the Stanislav Sucharda's Foundation was used by the sculptor purely for his creative activities and were not the representations of his work. Consequently, the key role of photographing Sucharda's sculpture and the confirmation of whether Stanislav Sucharda himself photographed will be the key outline. In exploring the possibilities of Stanislav Sucharda's work and his co-operation with photographs, I will use the approach of comparison with Auguste Rodin's photographic collection, who was Sucharda's friend.
Development of image formulation of architecture in times of digital age expansion
Podlesný, Jakub ; LEDVINA, Josef (advisor) ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (referee)
Thesis is focusing on two main themes of the relationship between photography and architecture and their evolution over time of massive digitization. Technologically examines new possibilities of image capture within photographing architecture and compares their with classic scanning method from the time before digital cameras and computers was normally available. Another subject is description of the new possibilities concerning presentation of architecture photography in the new digital era of cameras and improved 3D rendered image, adding to image section of printed and digital magazines, catalogues, social networks and other forms of architecture presentation, all thanks to simplicity of its acquisition and presentation.
The Camera Design Development
Kuklišová, Lucia ; DVOŘÁK, Tomáš (advisor) ; ŠIMŮNEK, Michal (referee)
This thesis discusses the camera design development from its very beginning until present time. Methodological is based on a basic ideas of industrial design, cooperation of brands with specific designers and achieve goals of industrial design. In the beginning, I am trying to find a breakpoint in thinking about the cameras, moment of not-only light-sensitive material development, but also adding of new ideas of camera ergonomics, the functional elements of the marking symbol or extra aesthetic value and mapping the effects and conditions to which it was formed. It contains substantial cooperation with world famous brands (Kodak, Leica, Hasselblad, Pentax ...), their theoretical basis and problems, concerning media images linked to the samples as well.

In this essay the author describes and critically reflects on the online live-streaming phenomena in mainland China. Within the last three years (2015 - 2018), online live-streaming became one of the most popular topics and potent business models in China. This relatively new media form is by now wildly accepted, to such an extent that it is used by different state departments in several cities, such as the fire department, traffic police, the communist youth league and so on and so forth. In June 2017, the number of live-stream users who had installed a streaming application was over 300 million, that is, an astonishing 45.6% of all internet users in China. In this essay, the author critically reflects on the development of this new social phenomena by creating a brief genealogy of live-streaming from its origin in game-streaming in the early years of the 21st century until today in 2018. Critical questions are asked about whether embracing whatever change called “high-tech” without hesitation, absorbing whatever new elements from any advanced models without any criticism, could cause other results worse than being technologically backwards? What happens when our private life become increasingly transparent? What does it mean to consume videos of people eating noodles in real-time? What does this desire tell us? The author also ponders upon the potential political potentiality of live-streaming and asks whether live-streaming can be used against the government, who control their online activity on a day to day basis? She also reflects on how artists can use live-streaming to make performance pieces? And, what role would chance encounters play within this context?
