Umjetnicko/istrazivacki projekat i izlozba PR0570R1 5JEC4NJ4 | 7HE PL4CE5 0F MEM0RY autora Zlatana Filipovica, pedagoga i umjetnika iz Sarajeva donisi jedan novi opus propitivanja uloge i uticaja digitalnih tehnologija na savremeni umjetnicki izraz.
Prostor polaznih tacaka u kreiranju digitalnih panoramskih zapisa u ovoj seriji nalaze se na lokaciji Sarajeva i Sarze (Sharjah) u Ujedinjenim Arapskim Emiratima.
Iako na prvi pogled panorame izgledaju sasvim realisticni prikazi pomenutih prostora odredjena doza neobicnog i drugacijeg raslojava planove ovih prostora posmatrac ubrzo pocinje da uvidja jednu novu dimenziju transformacije i popunjavanja prostora elementima koji u izvornosti poticu sa tih lokacija.

Materijalnu i staticnu dimenziju digitalnih foto radova nadopunjuje digitalni dinamicka augumentacija (AR augmented reality) komponentu rada kojij ce posjetioci moci pristupiti uz kositenje programa/aplikacije dostupne za iOS i android uredjaje. (Aurasma AR)

Digitalno nadopunjena realnost (AR) je polje koje Filipovic u svom pedagoskom i kreativnom radu vec neko vrijeme istrazuje.
U oviru izlozbe biti ce predstavljen i prototip AR monografije, projekta u razvoju a ciji je cilj kreiranje aplikacije za iOS/android uredjaje sa fokusom na predstavljanje umjetnika, galerija i institucija kulture.

By Zlatan Filipovic

Photographs in this series are products of reMediating the footage of the image based documentation. The changing vantage point, time delay between each of the photos and process of reCompositing are the parameters at play.
These are the starting elements and experimentation departs from here with a intent to create image forms questioning how does it feel to be here and now…

“… It was the end of Spring and paying another visit to the Heart of Sharjah without much planning in advance turned out to surprise me with the vibrant voices of the locals that normally stay in the cooler and more usual meeting spots like shopping malls and restaurants. It was the time of the Heritage Days Festival.
For many years I have been visiting Sharjah yet somehow always remained disconnected from the encounters with the local customs and people beyond the fragmented exposure to the acted-like scenarios of performing the memories of the Heritage.

Now I was able to take more of a neutral point and actually for the first time capture a series of short video clips that allowed me to construct these tapestry like landscapes of urban milieu interwoven with people on the street avoiding the projection of stereotypes about the foreign.

The point of view I took allowed me to move over the crowds and map the moments of the everyday and patterns people created in the open areas of the urban landscape.

Inspired and mesmerizing by the potential of slit-scan camera process I engaged alternative photo-mapping activity combining time-based imagery and image stitching algorithms to produce this Mapping of the City of Sharjah series.

I dent it Y sustaining identity

I dent It Y sustaining identity

We live.

We adapt.

We change.

We make sub/conscious decisions on how we develop and build our own Identity.

We do this by:

Decisions of what will we engage in.

Decisions of where we reside.

And even by what we chose to leave behind…

Sometimes the small simple actions trigger the waves of memories

and bring to the surface the very core of the fabric of the Identity we have formed to be.

Little rituals and daily routines, like repetitive simple gestures of removing the snow from the staircase can become the mantras and portals to the meditative ReConnecting experience.

Experience of who we WERE, ARE and WHAT we WANT to become.

The blanks and pauses in this process of repetitive loops are equally important give us reflective space. The short pauses are filled with a sort of ReStart in our continuous routine of being.

The recoiling in contrast to the swiping action of the cleansing provides for the anticipation of removing the stacks of modifiers, modifiers that transform non-destructively the base and the foundation of our core identity, our default state.



Y ?

Y sustain ?

Y reSet ?

Y strive to stay in the default state?

Y not embrace the chance?

Y not embrace the change?



P.S> Be it sand, dust or snow particles that endlessly keep covering and altering our default identity states we should enjoy little moments of simple rituals to remember, celebrate and ReInform the key-frames of our Identity’s parametric transformations over time.

The Camp That Is Not There

The world's leading Conference and Exhibition of Electronic Art ISEA took place in the United Arab Emirates organized by Zayed University.
I produced a new body of work titled "The Camp That Is Not There" that addressed the issues of Location (the main theme of the ISEA 2014).
An augmented reality (AR) panoramic photography work showcased my relationship to the location of the, now "missing" UAE National Guard camp site that has been dislocated.
