Dr. Vesna Petresin is a transdisciplinary artist and thinker. She has a practice as a time-architect, composing and performing with sound, light, rhythm, space, movement, text and code. The format of her work ranges from mixed reality, augmented live performance, immersive ambients, and audio-visual installations that build on the principle of a smart city.
Currently a Visiting Fellow at Goldsmiths and a Visiting Lecturer/Artist in Residency at the Netherlands Film Academy, she has lectured and published internationally (Springer, Thames & Hudson, Wiley Academy). Petresin’s practice explores embodiment, transformation and time, alongside the barriers between the intimate and the public sphere. Using her voice, movement, sound, image and light, she creates experiences that highlight body, movement, space and emotions.
The Methods and techniques for creating immersive experiences using light in spatial context will be the main theme during her presentations. Vesna will address scale and size in interiors as well as in urban settings, aesthetics and affect, inviting emotions and painting with coloured light creating illusory spatial experiences. To compose a lightscape she is using light and colour phenomenology. For the dynamics and narrative she is using rhythm, pattern and colour variations.
