Mike Tyka

Mike Tyka studied Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Bristol and went on to work as a research fellow at the University of Washington, studying the structure and dynamics of protein molecules. In 2009, Mike and a team of artists created Groovik’s Cube, a 35 feet tall, functional, multi-player Rubik’s cube. Since then, he co-founded ATLSpace, an artist studio in Seattle and has been creating metal and glass sculptures of protein molecules. In 2013 Mike went to Google to study neural networks, both artificial and natural. This work naturally spilled over to his artistic interests, exploring the possibilities of artificial neural networks for creating art.
