Originally a painter, with 12 solo exhibitions to her credit, Gordana has more than twenty years' experience of developing and exhibiting large-scale time-based media projects. Her artistic practise and theoretical work that intersects art, science and advanced digital technologies has formed five Cycles: Parallel Worlds, The Shirt of a Happy Man, Infonoise and the ongoing Fugue. A constant mark of her work throughout her experiments with new technologies has been her distinctive method of creating an effective cross-disciplinary framework for the emergence of synergy through collaboration. Gordana exhibited and lectured at leading interdisciplinary festivals and symposia, and artistic and scientific conferences. Her works from the ongoing Fugue Cycle (http://www.fugueart.com) has been widely presented and exhibited. Alongside her artistic practice, in the last six years Gordana has been artist-in-residence and also a Teaching Fellow at Computer Science Department, University College London, where she has founded and curates the Tesla Art and Science Group http://www-typo3.cs.ucl.ac.uk/research/tesla/. She has received a number of international and British academic awards.
My current research in the field of art, digital technology and brain science, and my proposal for neuroplastic arts has been first outlined in the paper METROPOLIS: AN EXTREME AND HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT (Mutamorphosis, Prague, 2007)
These ideas have been further elaborated in FUGUE AND VARIATIONS ON SOME THEMES IN ART AND SCIENCthe proceedings EVA 2009
Revised version of the paper is under review for a Leonardo Special Issue
