Algorithms and Literature

In the first group of publications there are essays on algorithmic culture and a body of conceptual literary work created using various digital and electronic techniques.

Projects include a pair of books, Tactical Poetics and Optimised Poetics, which introduce poetic practices of co-creational textual production in the age of mass surveillance, artificial intelligence, and digital commodification. Books are under an open and free licenced. They can be downloaded for free, from a link in the Publications section. Bordering both digital art and digital literature, there is a project I Do Not Wish To Be Loved, I Wish Everyone Loved Leaves, an interactive RNN for generating and visualizing text in the style of Serbian modernist writer Miloš Crnjanski.


Travel Stories

I've written several travelogues in collaboration with Lazar Pašćanović and The Travel Club (Klub putnika), the main Balkan hub for independent travelers and travel writers.

The most prominent work is Bantustan: Atlas of an African Journey (Bantustan: Atlas jednog putovanja), a book of travel prose written by Lazar Pašćanović, Marko Đedović, and me. Describing a 3-month journey from Serbia to Namibia, the book consists of conversations between us and the people we met. I'm also a co-author of Neutabanim stazama (Off the Beaten Path), a collection of short travelogues published by Klub putnika. With Mario Janković-Romano and Nenad Morača, I've written The Land Whose Cities Do Not Exist, a story from Mongolia. Since 2019 I serve as a regular jury member of the annual literary competition for the best travelogue.


Academic Research in Affective Computing

A body of academic software-related research in the fields of Affective Computing, Human-Computer Interaction, Generative Aesthetics, Textual Emotion Recognition, and Data Visualization. The most important work is Synesketch, a free open-source project I’ve started in 2008. Papers were published in two journals, IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems and IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing.

Research on affective systems was a collaboration with Jelena Jovanović and Vladan Devedžić from the Good Old AI Lab, Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Organisational Sciences, University of Belgrade, Serbia. Research on generative systems was done in collaboration with Philippe Pasquier, at the Metacreation Lab, School of Interactive Arts + Technology, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada.

Essays and Articles

Among the essays I’ve written for The Travel Club (Klub putnika), I single out The Travel Club Symbol (an essay about personal geographic lines we draw by moving) and Geographic I (an essay about the personal geoidentity each person makes by travelling the globe and exploring it physically).

For the BalkansMedia portal I've written essays on Data Art and Data Journalism, as well as tutorials about Creative Coding and building with d3.js. They're available in Serbo-Croatian and Albanian.

For the BeforeAfter portal I've written an essay about the most meaningless app on the Web and a review of the game Monument Valley.

Finally, there are three old AI-related encyclopedia articles I wrote during my undergraduate years with Milan Stanković, Jelena Jovanović, Mario Janković-Romano, and Vita Kovanović.
