Damjanski is an artist living in a browser. Concerned with themes of power, poetry and participation, he explores the concept of apps as artworks. The app Bye Bye Camera is the camera for the post-human era. Every picture people take automatically removes any person. The app Computer Goggles let’s people capture the world like a machine sees it and the LongARcat app creates long cats in AR.
In 2018, he co-founded MoMAR, an Augmented Reality gallery app aimed at democratizing physical exhibition spaces, art institutions and curatorial processes within New York’s Museum of Modern Art. WIRED covered the launch with the headline "Augmented Reality Is Transforming Museums".
He created an online space that only programs can access. This software performance ,called Humans not invited, first hit Reddit’s front page before it was shown at the König Galerie in Berlin.
In March 2022, he published his first decentralized app (DApp) Unhuman Compositions. It’s a collection of 777 participatory generative photography NFTs – each generated when a person takes a photo with the camera of their smartphone. The work invites people to explore the abstraction of our physical world through a generative algorithm.
His work has appeared internationally, including exhibitions at NRW-Forum, König Galerie, Roehrs & Boetsch, Pioneer Works, Tropez, Import Projects. Currently Damjanski resides in New York.
