Darja Peterca is a media artist based in London, currently studying for an MA in Computational Arts at Goldsmiths University.
Her present practice mainly features custom software and/or prepared electronic equipment that together create a drawing machine of some kind. She is interested in correlation between technology and the artist, which is continually self-evolving.
The spectators are exposed to real time audio-visual processes, but also invited to emancipate themselves from ‘passive’ spectatorship, suggesting a more engaging form of contemporary art, as their ‘active’ role in influencing the artistic outcome is acknowledged. It is not implied that they are ‘active’ to the extent they become ‘actors’, but to the extent they become part of a more ‘democratic’ meeting between the artist and viewer, taking on a higher level of participation.
