Vesna Krebs
RGB Foraminifere

Duration: 00:03:49

RGB  Foraminifere by Vesna KrebsRGB foraminiferas are shells mostly built of frequencies. They can be found in PAL, NTSC and SECAM environments. By constant moving and rotating they capture tiny pieces of light they feed on. Most of them live in cathode tubes but mutated forms can also be found in screens built of liquid crystals or LEDs. Their skeleton is constructed of dots – picture elements, pixels. Through evolution many mutation forms developed. Foras transmit “audio feedback” signal, on a frequency 10 Hz, inaudible to a human ear. Foras can not be seen with a human eye. Scientists use analog and digital media to capture specimen.

Born in 1979, Vesna Krebs lives and works in Ljubljana (Slovenia), and has been active in new media as a visual and conceptual artist since 2002, combining her passion for art and love of technology in generative art and interactive video works.

Ex Voto
Mirjana Batinić

Duration: 00:08:36, loop

Ex Voto by Mirjana BatinićMetaphysical image of passion; scene of a kiss from the outside and the inside simultaneously. Kiss as a kind of passion’s primordial principle. Fullness without words, explanations, analyzing. An external image of passion. Kiss is exposed, giving itself away without aggression, without narcissism, following purely erotic – although subtly discrete – intention. Passion is shown in its rawness, like uncooked food.
Passionateness is in the very passion, and not elsewhere. There is no theatre, the passion shown is real. The inside and the outside become one. Work is conceived as a loop, endless duration of a kiss, with no beginning no end.

Mirjana Batinić is a multimedia artist, born 1977 in Split, Croatia. Currently finishing postgraduate studies at department of Video and New Media at Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. She was a postgraduate researcher at department of Media and Communications at University in Klagenfurt, Austria. Graduated 2003 at Arts academy of University in Split, Croatia.
