Mostar B&H, 2021

Hyphae is an audio-visual performance for Street Art Festival opening in Mostar, inspired by the history of the Stari Most, 15th century bridge in south of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

On November 9, 1993, one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic architecture in Eastern Europe, Stari Most was deliberately destroyed during the civil war. Experiencing war events like this helped me understand of importance of architecture and history of my region.

Performance, 2021.

Street Art Festival Mostar invited me to transform Stari Most into an immersive environment. I give myself task to establish communication between past and present, war and peace.

Virtual setup
Looking through archive of bridge and exploring mycelium inspired me to create evolutionary audio-visual ecosystem. Name came during reading ‘Na mjesecini’ by Aleksa Santic, who was Bosnian-Herzegovian poem from Mostar.

Working on realistic models in studio helped me to find the sweet spot between virtual and physical space, organic and mechanical, chaos and order.
