This is the online home of creative technologist Tomasz (Tomek) Zemla. I create images with code.
I work at the intersection of design, technology and visual arts.
My professional profile is a combination of computer science and fine arts education, interactive design skills and knowledge of photography.
I have been designing and programming user interfaces, applications and websites for a variety of software companies and design studios for over 20 years.
My current interests are focused on creating innovative user interfaces, information design, data visualization, generative art and computational design.
I am currently working on a series of projects I call computed image. Here are the latest:
In 2014 I was commissioned by an artist to create custom interactive sculpting application. Digital Sculptor is a 3D tool that allows for interactive dialogue between algorithms and the sculptor.
When not working hard on client projects I build toy applications like this Calendar or explore ideas in computational art and design: Circuit Flora or Fish DNA. I also make silly, virtual gifts for my girlfriend: Typographic Love.
What is in the name? Pixelbox is a reference to an imaginary sandbox of ideas where I get to play with colored pixels.
