It combines architecture and new media. She works digitally, virtually and in physical space, and examines their correlations. Studying.

Installation 3.0

Artist Ksenija Tajsić is interested in the relation of analog, digital, physical, and virtual; the space between technology, art, architecture, and science. Her works deal with filtering architectural discipline through different mediums and interdisciplinary examinations of the capacity of new media in space. Therefore, the artist describes her work as structuring an entity that is a hybrid vision of an architectural sculpture, referring to evolutionary processes taken from nature, driven by technology, and placed in physical space (it operates in a zone between art and science, and serves as a tool for clarification of hierarchy between art and architecture, and their cohesion with technology and nature). The work aims to dematerialize and decontextualize elements in functional spaces and give them new purpose and meaning, reshaping their existence from architectural elements to artistic objects. It leans on the principles of metabolism, responsiveness, adaptation, superorganisms, interactions, softness and fluidity, and operates through hands-on and virtual modeling and explorations of materiality.


What is the language in common for the young people today?

A shared desire for change; gathering, communication, interaction, collaboration.

What does the process of making one of your pieces look like?

Planned; I follow the sketches and stick to the initial idea. Still, I enjoy when work seduces me and takes me somewhere else, when something unexpected comes up.

Which challenges have you faced while making art as you know it?

The challenge for me is to find a scope and classify my work.

Do you consider yourself an artist, and what does that word mean to you?

I am between architecture and art.

What is your escape from reality? Do you even have a need to escape from something?

I have. I work then, mostly digitally, because it seems to me that this world leaves more potential for escape and speculation.

What does the word innovative mean to you?

Burn and be passionate. Innovation is born from there.

Do you have a plan for the future? Where can your artistic practice take you?

I don't have an exact plan, I am driven by desires and short-term goals. At the moment, I like the environment in which I am, because I study a lot, so I would like it to stay that way for a while.

What made the biggest influence on you to become what you are today and do what you do now?

School, environment and people who inspire me.

How would you describe Serbian (Balkan or European-depends on where you live and work) contemporary cultural scene?

We are ready for more.

In which way does your creative process shape you or changes you as a person, if it does at all?

It can certainly affect personal shaping and change, but I don't know how much and in what way, because it's part of me.
