Rubber concrete
metal, sensor, electric motor, concrete, 2020.

In this work author experiments while creating a completely new composite material, a flexible concrete called the Rubber concrete, which in the form of a square becomes an active part of sculptures of the same name. The work is conceived with an interdisciplinary artistic-scientific method of experiment, which resulted in an innovative composite that possibly has new, yet undiscovered properties.

In her artistic practice author integrates sculpture, installation, performance and video art by using contemporary technology to comment on interrelationship of people as social beings, the environments in which they are located and their relationship to art. Her newest work seeks to encourage reflection on what it means to live in a world filled with new technology and cite the understanding of the inseparability of man as a natural being and nature of technological progress.
