VESNA KREBS

Vesna Krebs is a new media artist, experimentalist, and researcher. She currently lives and works between Ljubljana and London. Her creative practice explores dis-ordered states, glitches, and chaotic behaviours through a cross-disciplinary approach blending generative art, live visuals, interactive art and sound.

Vesna’s current  focus is on  inter-waving complex systems found in nature with digital systems of several different kinds. Her goal is to form a new visual experiences based on known patterns. She is combining natural textures with digital patterns inside monochromatic/spectrum fusion.

Her work includes video design for theatre and dance, site specific installations, live AV performances and making music videos. Vesna collaborated with Leo Abrahams (musician, composer and producer known for working with Brian Eno, John Hopkins), Fiona Brice (composer, orchestral arranger and violinist – working with Placebo, Kanye West, Sugababes, Boy George…), Tanya Holt (singer and songwriter), Ivana Djilas (director), Marko Japelj (Scenografer), Milan Tomašik (dancer and choreographer), Maire Dee ( dancer/choreographer) and others….
