Postgravity Art :: Syntapiens

Dragan Živadinov studied theatrical direction at the Academy of Music, Radio, Television and Film in Ljubljana from 1980 - 1984. He was a cofounder of the art movement NSK in 1985. During the '80s he constructed the style "retro-gardism", where he constructed retro-gardist events and observatories. In 1983, he founded the retro-garde Theatre of Scipio Nasica's Sisters, and in 1987, the cosmokinetic observatory Red Pilot. In the early '90s, he constructed "informances" and transformed Red Pilot into the Noordung Cosmokinetic Cabinet. In 1995, he embarked on the 50-year theatrical process Noordung 1995-2045, through the style of "telecosmism." In 1998 he became a candidate cosmonaut, and in 1999 realized Biomechanics Noordung, the first complete theatre production in zero-gravity conditions. Since 2000, he has been constructing post-gravitational theatrical abstracts, and in 2005, he staged the first reprise of Noordung 1995-2005-2045.

Dunja Zupančič graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 1987, with a thesis on Eisenstein and the Russian avant-garde. During the '80s, using processes involving the montage of abstract textures and the construction of composites, she produced pictures of monumental size. During the '90s, using the engineering of pneumatic and hydraulic elements, she constructed mechatronic abstracts and art satellites (umbots). On December 15, 1999, she visualized and materialized Biomechanics Noordung, the first complete theatrical production performed in conditions of zero-gravity. Since 2000, she has devoted herself to substitutes of corporeality, which she translates into amorphous structures with the help of digital tools.

Miha Turšič studied industrial design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana from 1994 - 1999. He began his professional career as a digital visualizations designer at the digital production house ARXEL TRIBE.
In 1998, he co-founded the design company ASOBI. Since 2005, he has directed his research towards the design of zero-gravity environments. In 2006, the international design magazine I.D. proclaimed ASOBI designers of the year in the Lighting category; and he constructed a memorial centre in Vitanje dedicated to the pioneer of space technology, Herman Potočnik Noordung. His products combine design with cosmistic structures in conditions of zero-gravity. In 2008, he devises the GOD-Zero Gravity Design brand. Miha Turšič collaborates with the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Centre in Russia.
