Dinka Pignon works with spatial video installation and ‘video sculpture’. Her practice is experimental, situated in the field of ‘mixed reality’. In her installations, large-scale video projections reshape the architecture of the space and create illusionary effects over objects. Operating on the borderline between the real and the virtual, the work is characterized by my strong affinity for the phenomenal, liminal, conceptual and minimal.

Miša Savić is a musician with a long association with the Student Culture Centre since the 1970s. He has long been interested in the connections between art and music, and, specifically, the ways the performance could influence music. Given that SKC was in close proximity to the Music Academy, where he was studying, he began hanging out there for the same reason his visual artist colleagues did – because it was a relatively free space, where young artists came to discuss various issues. He is well known for his  1976 minimalist composition, entitled Twenty-four Hours, which involved the artist playing one chord, consisting of six tones, repeatedly every second, for twenty four hours.
