History Of The Future

10. - 25.1.2012

Opening: Tuesday, 10 January 2012, 7 pm

"History of the Future" takes us on a temporal journey through the 
cinematic archive of international science-fiction production, organised 
as a multi-media presentation of content-based clusters of 
representations of possible realities of the future and the present, 
which follow chronologically from 1895 until 2009, and they appear on a 
time line in the future, which ends in the year of 802,701. The 
interactive infrastructure of the multi-media installation offers the 
user a selection of contents, within which the author presents the 
socio-political contexts that shaped the /zeitgeist/of each historical 
period in which the selected films were made. The presentation 
transpires in the form of a video lecture and in the style of 
/philoscifi/(= the philosophy of science fiction). Through the topics of 
sociological and media structure of popular culture, the author in this 
project explores the anthropology of fear as it relates to the changes 
in the perception of nature, technology and, consequently, social 
psychodynamics through the phenomenology of the perception of time, 
which, in the January instalment of the project, she will offer to the 
viewer as a presentation of the juxtaposition of linearity and laterality.

*Maja Smrekar*was born 1978 in Slovenia, 2005 graduated at the Sculpture 
Department of Fine Art Academy in Ljubljana, currently finishing MA at 
the New Media Department. Her main interest is based at the 
phenomenology of perception which she first started researching through 
space phenomena by composing live video among various collaborations in 
interactive sound/visual projects with other artists. Her main artistic 
focus remains at the intermedia art field. Among others, she has been 
collaborating with Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana for the last five years 
and with Aksioma Institute for the last two years. Under their 
production she has executed projects within which she was researching 
frequency phenomena through biofeedback and thelematic presence in 
relations to body, privacy and (inter)subjective perception of space. 
During the last two years she has been developing projects within the 
field of bioart with focus on living organisms. In 2010 she organised 
International Festival HAIP10/New Nature which has been focussed to 
interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration ethics between scientists 
and artists. The festival took place at Multimedia Centre Cyberpipe in 
Ljubljana where she has been active as an artistic director for two 
years. Maja Smrekar currently lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
