Adam  Bialek  is  a  young  designer,  a  researcher,  and  a  visual  artist.  In  his  work  he  blends  socio-cultural  anthropology
and  environmental  philosophy,  implementing  the  multidisciplinary  and  site-specific  methodologies  of  research,  ranging  from  academic
studies  of  antiquity  to  field  investigations  of  regional  agriculture.  Deconstructing  the  shifting  boundaries  between  what  is  biological,
ecological,  cultural,  and  political;   his  research  draws  parallels  with  the  local,  vernacular  and  historical  sources  such  as  mythology,
folklore,  cuisine,  heritage.  Thanks  to  this  approach  he  conceives  allegorical  concepts  and  stories,  and  synthesizes  them  by  creating 
bio-mythological  artifacts  of  the  anthropocene.
