Do you know what a fish will do when it runs up a hill?
Elznic, Zita ; Štroblová, Kateřina (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
Diploma thesis entitled Do you know what a fish will do when it runs up a hill? concerns the topic of industrial fishing. Formally, it is an installation that contains two parts. The first part is an oval object on which are attached mechanical fish, which form a moving flock. Using engines, they interact with each other and the viewer accompanied by the song. The second part includes three separate mechanical fish, which create a direct dialogue with the viewer. The installation is located in a white cube. The result is to give the impression that the fish are alive and, with the help of a human voice, get closer to the viewer. Title Do you know what a fish does when it runs up a hill? based on a child's joke. This sentence is characteristic of the topic, in that it is all nonsense. The fish do not run, do not move on land and do not even talk. An attempt at this joke to humanize fish is quickly over when you know the answer. Just clapping tells us how foreign this different world is.

The authenticity of the experiences of these people with toxic psychosis is very sensitive material, therefor it is proccessed, in this series, in such a way that can it bring closer to the viewers to posibally unimaginable situations and ways of perception of reality.
METAPHYSICAL STORIES
Dvořák, Vojtěch ; Písařík, Petr (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
The work entitled "Metaphysical stories" relates to the personal perception and experience of the outside world and oneself, as well as to the perception of painting and picture. The concept of metaphyisics is borrowed from philosophy precisely for its thematization of human existence. The narrative presents a stream of expressions intended for sharing, communication, entertainment and learning. The bachelor thesis consists of a series of oil paintings on canvas. These are abstract paintings in which I examine the shape, color and subject matter of the painting. Imaginative scenes devoid of figures and perspectives. The aim is to open up as much space as possible to unlimited expression.
Abstract Drawing
Nováková, Bára ; Zapletal, Aleš (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
The bachelor thesis consists of five large-format charcoal drawings on paper. The central motif is transformation, its possibilities, forms and ways. The drawings show constant movement and transformation, living matter, the ruling force inherent in the natural elements. The bachelor thesis has an imaginative character and works mainly with abstract morphology. But even though the drawings are abstract, I purposefully work with them in the spatiality and light modeling of objects, as with real things. In a way, the drawings illustrate the processes during which things take shape.
Kamikakushi
Pejchová, Natálie ; Ptáček, Jiří (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
The term kamikakushi is an old Japanese traditional technique of magical abduction (spiritual travel, where one's attention is taken from the normal state of consciousness to the deeper layers of perception of reality), in which the victim does not recall the abduction. I borrowed this term from Japanese mythology, which is used in stories for kids. In our meaning it could be understood as forgetting myself / not being witty in everyday life is a breathless journey to imagination. The boundary between exploring the facts, real but also starring into nowhere, where the spaces begin to come to life by themselves only, because we decide to attach importance to it. It is the moment when restlessness awakens, making the noise rumbling in that empty silence. I connect with space, I am the nature reference, I am a dialogue, a mirror. This state of perception, experience of reality is for me an important source of imagination. It is a state in which painting takes place. Reality becomes magical when we turn our attention to it and empty it at the same time from notion. Emotion is the primordial sign of perception, creating an atmosphere of its use is the idea of reviving is the search for an image.

Feedback

My diploma work is an installation, made from multiple instances of a device iniciating string resonance via electromagnetic field. These devices along with strings are placed on the wall in geometrical shape. Installation creates loop on multiple levels. Except the fact that installation have a circular shape, position of each string starts at the end of another string. Second, more inconspicious loops takes place in the electromagnetic device resonating the strings, that do that with feedback loop. Strings consist every step of chromatic scale, that repeats itself, just an octave higher. Amplification of the final sound of strings is done purely acoustically, with help of the wall on wich the piece is installed. This piece is in its nature concerned with spirituality in music, not necessarily in sense of evoking a spiritual experience, but rather demonstrating metaphors and parallels, that exists between physical aspects of tonal music and different religious ideas. The symmetrical shape of installation refer to religious and occult visuality, built f.e. in cabal on Fibonacci numbers, that is present not only in nature ( for example, the veins of the leaves grow by these numbers), but also in tonal music system (ancient philosophers were working with this concept, see Plato's Music of the Spheres). Strings in this piece produce drone sound, that is naturally evoking spirituality (most visible in buddhist monk meditation). This sound in the piece demonstrates immutability and constancy, the fact that all the chromatic tones are playing demonstrates wholeness (this fact may produce interesting resonances emerging between chromatic steps), so to speak, the unchangeable laws of physics, or to put it in religious lingo, the god law. The symbol of loop also refers to religion, like the eternal return of the same, the periodicity of history. Strings can be viewed as astrophysical symbol. Everything stated is nothing but my recourse, that should not ultimately determine the perception of the piece by viewer. The goal of the work is to offer experience without need to be put into context

Hoangová, Nikol ; Strouhal, Jonáš (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
In my diploma work I am dealing with topic of work in one of the world's largest global retailer on the internet - Amazon. In 2015 Amazon opened a new fullfilment centre in Dobrovíz near Prague. Through the statement of one of ex-employee I discovered what it means to work for one of the richest man in the world (2019) - Jeff Bezos. These working conditions I've decided to demonstrate on platform AmazonExperience which consists from e-shop that contains artworks - that apeears as products. They are mostly inspired by company's slogans, stereotypes of work, experiences of Amazon's system and strict or unwritten rules.
Cultural landscape
Plachký, Tomáš ; Kotzmannová,, Alena (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
The thesis deals with current cultural landscape and reflection of individual social topics in Europe. The installation consists of three objects that solve the individual theme, using material experiments. Their reactions shift these topics further to certain associations.
