2007. HYBRIDE / IMAGINARY EXIBITION, Museum of Modern Art, Novi Sad Throughout the history, media storage formats have significantly evolved as a consequence of the technological development. Eventually, analog storage media gave its way to digital carriers such as CDs, DVDs, MiniDiscs, Digi8, etc. Each new media format forces the end-product consumer to abide to the new standards and invest additional financial and other resources (purchasing computers and software, investing time to tackle the learning curve, etc). By using the contemporary media formats for several years, I came to the conclusion that the end effect on the consumer can be efficiently achieved through simple and accessible techniques. A 2000 exhibition of 20 different artists relating the traditional painting with modern media presentations provided me with an opportunity to bring the FLIP BOOK out of the past. http://www.msuv.org/index.htm

2007. STOPMOTION WORKSHOP, NEW MEDIA DEPARTMENT, ART ACADEMY Novi Sad Recent participation in the civil army service program provided me with an opportunity to enrich my skills by various collaborations within the New Media Department. The main focus was on stop frame animation workshop and interaction with Dragan Zivancevic`s students with various back- grounds. Lorca’s poem “A Little Mute Boy” served as a working scenario used to emphasize timing in animation as the end result.

2012. FLAG! ALLIANCE, solo exibition, AWA Gallery, Amsterdam
Exhibition based on fascination with flags and visual language produced by endless possibilities to combine and merge them into a particular graphical and motion framework. This results in an image of beauty-of-diversity. Developing such framework, artist’s intention is to point out the class differences that exist each time more and more in the contemporary societies ruled by major economies. http://ot301.nl/
