Vitar Drinković

Currently my work is about exploration and making of circumstances- conditions, using interactive art apparatuses- inventions and installations as mediators, “ filters” in communication between people.
Through the setup-positioning and use of works my intention is to explore and create new contexts and perceptions of everyday life.
Beginning from the basic, simple, biological forms of communication-exchange that affect perception and deconstruct the way it is made- shaped through the information that we are surrounded by.
Fields of my interest and exploration are: everyday life, the connection between perception- information and biology, development and influence of technology on the development of human society, sustainability, the connection between art - science and economy.
