Within her works Tatjana Tanja Vujinović Kušej explores the culture of play, the poetry of noise and anthropomorphisation by using software applications, custom electronics and objects. Through exploration of the culture of play she enables an alternative, phenomenological experience of artwork through its sensorial aspects and emotional impact. In her works noise appears as an agent of serendipity, enabling new discoveries. Her works are also inspired by the relationship between noise and signal, as found in information theory.
At lab 3.0 in Munich (18.-21.2.2016) Tatjana Tanja Vujinović Kušej present three works from the Universal Objects series:
Universal Objects: Garden is a surreal digital garden full of avatars performing their rituals. It is a realtime 3D work built in a video game engine that enables a visitor to stroll through and explore the surroundings from a first-person perspective. The visitor is invited to explore hidden sounds, corners and avatars‘ body modifications in this unusual garden. Universal Objects: Levitations is a series of seven digital prints of avatars caught amidst ritual levitations. In the mini-series of works called Universal Objects: Observers, avatars observe iterations of themselves displayed in a gallery environment.
Environments from the Universal Objects series are non-narrative situations – vibrational, living surroundings filled with elements that are either inanimate or executing simple behavioral patterns through which the situations themselves become like an organism. The majority of 3D objects, like suspended automata, perform minimal ritualistic gestures. They create zones of pulsing play that never transcend into something else but rather exist in a state of non-narrative endlessness.
Tatjana Tanja Vujinović Kušej’s work „Universal Objects“ will be on display during UNPAINTED lab 3.0, 18.-21. Feb 2016, @MixedMunichArts, Katharina-von-Bora-Straße 8a, 80333 Munich.
