REPUBLIC OF SERBIA AT THE LONDON DESIGN BIENNALE 2023
134 / SACRED GEOMETRY
This pavilion looks at the etymology of the concept of design. How do you define design, but not create limitations or directions? This art experiment is inspired by the point at which theological and technological design collaborate, in terms of fundamental design.
Medieval ornamentation was one of the most intelligible languages for the world and developed as a design apparatus. Serbia looks at how we better understand the relationship between art, science, technology and theology.
From cosmology to artificial intelligence, which methods can allow us to understand the relationship between humans and the world that we live in?
The art experiment starts with an object that is inspired by Serbian ornaments of the Middle Ages. This will be the centre point of which technologies such as light and an AI video-map will rotate – an assessment of the relationship between humanity and machines.
