Shining moment in between (a mapped projection in spatially limited circumstances) is a practical and theoretical exploration of the change in perception of space and environment through the use of digital technology. Focus is on creating audio-visual sequences made out of digitized archive material, animation, and reproduction of videos in real time. Through determined goals, the focus of the project is on the impact of the mapped projection as a particular work of socially engaged art on the public space.

Practical realisation of the art project is conducted according to the explorations of the field of mapped projection and the use of digital technologies through information systems of data processing. The mechatronic system as a unified medium (picture, sound, and movement) was used and presented in the project. In terms of content and theme, the artist has, through the mapped projection, using programmable logic controllers, presented the phenomenon of “human - machine” interaction in a mass media information environment.

The work is part of the doctoral artistic project realized under the mentorship of the assoc. prof. Dejan Grba, in the Digital Art programme at the Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Art in Belgrade.
