He runs projects using spatial projection and interactive installation. He cooperates with composers and performers, designing new forms of expression and stage creation for contemporary audiovisual shows. He coauthors interdisciplinary works in the intersection of music, visual arts, performance art, and cyberspace. 

He has coauthored the multimedia concert Microconcerto V for solo bassoon and electronics, preented at the 153rd Silesian Rostrum of Composers (2017). In 2018, he coauthored (with Marian Oslislo and Krzysztof Zygalski) the visual layer for Andrzej Krzanowski’s Audition V. The premiere of this full version took place at ATM Studio during 2018 Warsaw Autumn. He was the coauthor of the Wherever instal-action/audiovisual concert, organised by the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra during the 8th edition of Premieres Festival in 2019. The same year, he gave an improvised audiovisual concert Silence the Stone’s Scream at the 28th Ars Cameralis festival in Katowice. He has participated in numerous cultural events as VJ (author of real-time generative visualisations), including the Photography Month in Cracow (2019) and Jazz Scramble in Bielsko-Biała (2020). In October 2020 he authored the interactive installation Transforma/Wherever, which is a metaphor of the audiovisual concert cycle Wherever. This included seven stations (interactive artefacts) composed of LED screens, image detection systems, and loudspeakers, forming the basis of Tomasz Strojecki’s PhD. In 2022, he authored the multimedia layer for Stravinsky’s Histoire d’un soldat show at the NOSPR concert hall.
