Marko Batista: Temporary Objects and Hybrid Ambients

Marko Batista is an artist working at the intersection of science and art. By creating hybrid technological, electromagnetic or chemical systems, he confronts the mystification of technology while also opening up new ways of thinking about technology. With his experimental systems, which bring together the abovementioned fields, he expands the sphere of human perception and the phenomenology of unstable audio-visual systems in space and time.
This book brings together four different perspectives on Marko Batista’s work. Jurij Krpan’s text analyses Marko Batista’s work chronologically and positions it in the Slovenian as well as the broader cultural space. Andreja Hribernik tackles the artist’s work from the perspective of theoretical starting-points. This is taken up by Ida Hiršenfelder, who analyses Batista’s work primarily in light of the development of contemporary technologies and DIY principles. Rounding out the book, Luka Zagoričnik’s text describes the artist’s works from the perspective of sound.
