Hello! My name is Michal Poustka and I’m a media creative, currently based in Pilsen, Czech Republic. I’m a slightly crazy photoholic with passion for photography, AR/XR, 3D graphics, vintage Vespa scooters and Vietnamese food.
Since the beginning of my university studies , I was already working in Marketing and I was exploring my passion for photography and media. (2006-2009 was such a study loop for me. I studied physiotherapy..! ;] )
In 2009 I started studying Visual Culture at University of West Bohemia. During my studies, I worked as a media freelancer and marketing manager for a local Mercedes-Benz dealer. In 2014 I graduated with Master’s degree with diploma thesis in abstract photography.
After graduation, I worked as a teacher of 3D animation at the Nerudovka Secondary Art School. After 5 years and 1 own graduated class (Yes, I was a class teacher! In one of the best classes of all the time! =] ), I decided to postpone teaching and start studying again.
In 2019 I started studying the Master’s degree in Intermedia at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art (The Multilab). It massively influenced me and pushed me more into the interactive spectrum. So at the moment I’m really obsessed with social media filters (mostly Instagram and Facebook), experimenting with their possibilities, exploring limits of AR and its potential for use on an artistic level. At the same time, I am intensively growing my skills in 3D and graphics.
After repeated data loss and of course, under the influence of lockdown, I decided to compose fragments of all possible and impossible backups and to build this website. Thanks for reading the text till the end! But now stop dealing with the letters and hurry up to explore the image content…
