François Zajéga

François Zajéga est un artiste programmeur vivant et codant à Bruxelles. 
Après une formation d'infographie, une formation de dessin, une carrière professionnelle de web-designer/web-master comme employé et entrepreneur, il a exploré le monde scientifique à l'institut Numédiart de l'Université de Mons en tant que chercheur spécialisé dans le traitement vidéo et l'interaction homme-machine.

Il est aujourd'hui assistant dans la section arts numériques dirigée par Michel Cleempoel à Arts², l'école supérieure des arts de Mons. Il présente son travail dans des expositions et festivals internationaux, donne des conférences et organise des ateliers autour de la place de la machine dans la production artistique et du rapport entre les arts et la science. Il travaille actuellement sur un moteur de jeu basé sur Ogre3D et Puredata dans le cadre d'un projet nommé Polymorph.

La majorité de ses travaux utilisent des solutions libres.
