Adam  Bialek  is  an  emerging  designer,  researcher,  and  visual  artist.  In  his  work  he  deconstructs  the
boundaries  between  the  biological,  the  ecological,  the  cultural,  the  political,  and  the  technological;  drawing
parallels  with  the  local,  vernacular  and  historical  sources  such  as  mythology,  folklore,  ethnology,  linguistics.
Thanks  to  this  approach  he  conceives  allegorical  concepts  and  narratives,  and  synthesizes  them  by  creating
bio-mythological  artifacts  of  the  Anthropocene.
