Last week the Serbian media artist Nataša Teofilović visited CERN. Nataša creates virtual characters which are living art works, often employing animation techniques. She won an honorary mention for her work in the first Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN competition for her outstanding digital works which cross the boundaries between virtual and real spaces. As part of her prize, Arts@CERN offered Nataša the opportunity for a two day visit to CERN, which is being funded by a Swedish foundation travel grant.
Nataša gave a talk at a CERN session seminar in the Library about why and how she creates her digital work and virtual beings, she showed examples and revealed insights into the role and status of an artist in her native Serbia. In the end of the second day she met both this year`s residency artists.
Her suitcase got lost on her flight home. A few days later she mailed: "..My suitcase has come back but probably its super-symmetry twin is still in the resto 1, waiting for me to come back :)"
