DR. IDA SALAMON I was born in Belgrade, I am living in Vienna and I am traveling often between the both cities and many other destinations. Due to the wide range of study programs available in the Humanities at the School of Philosophy at the University of Belgrade, I decided to pursue a degree in Ethnology and Anthropology, where I completed my doctorate on the Serbian diaspora in Vienna.

the fragile world of lúcio carvalho

THE FRAGILE WORLD OF Lúcio Carvalho AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW Lúcio Carvalho's art is inspired by scenography as well as Baroque, Rococo and Renaissance era. Carvalho has been drawn to art for his entire life; as a child, he would find refuge under a huge banquet table, where he would spend his time drawing and coloring, exhibiting his prized possession for his eyes only. For a very long time, Lúcio felt different, guilty, and confused as to why he had such a passion for expressing himself and creating. Paralyzed by the fear of not owning a living, he waited before deciding to follow his passion and make a living as an artist. With an incredibly emotional, high technique, and full of passion for art, Carvalho is the rising star of the contemporary art market. He is…

"wood/light ii - tangle" (2020-2021)

"TANGLE" is a series of intertwined geometric forms that float off the wall. Each appears to be solid wood with 3D printed joints, yet unexpectedly illuminates from within. This series is part of an ongoing investigation of merging technology with natural materials, creating surprising juxtapositions of both form and behavior. The shapes start as hand-drawn sketches, then become 3D models randomized and mutated with a parametric process subject to both aesthetic and structural constraints. Those shapes are then selected and "cross-bred" while further tweaked by hand, in a back and forth exchange between artist and software. Each sculpture's geometry and light patterns in the "Tangle" series are intended to hover between organic and synthetic. The animated patterns are derived from natural systems, abstracted to create shifting glowing patterns within. The first edition,…

eric forman co-evolution|person and machine

Eric Forman (1973) works in the intersections between art, design, and new technology. Forman develops his own software and tools to create sculptures and installations that dynamically respond to viewers and other physical phenomena. For nearly twenty years, his work has used playful interaction to reveal language, simulation, and perception issues. Underneath all is an investigation of the uncertain presence of human and technological co-evolution: the overlappings of natural and artificial, real and simulated, person and machine. Forman's work creates modes of interaction not often found in dominant forms of new media: subtle, slow, surprising. Sometimes delightful, sometimes unsettling, his work plays on our uneasy fascination with new technology without cynically denying its magical qualities. The technical complexity in this work is sometimes transparently revealed as itself worthy of reflection, while…

"human hair knot" (2015)

Some of the Scale/Scape series pieces have dots so small that they do not rely on blurring panels for viewers to resolve the images. The weakness of human vision is sufficient, as, at an average viewing distance, we cannot consider the pattern as individual components. The dots are discretely visible, but our brains give us no choice but to experience the gestalt of recognition. This image is from the microscopic scale, a single strand of human hair tied in a knot, adapted from a scanning electron microscope photograph.…
