An interdisciplinary artist with a unique artistic expression including the realization of artistic works with innovative interdisciplinary concepts and projects in which we can observe a new approach in questioning of today’s modern society. Artist Moon challenges time and space through science and spirituality. Her art makes a subtle impact on human awareness and individual self-recognition by considering an all incorporating image of the world where we exist. Her current research is looking at communication fields, sound visualization and meta-language. Following artworks are mostly from the year 2016 and 2017.

Artist Moon rethinks futurity and auto-reflects art tactical goals unfolding the future that the human cannot think but should belong to. Her ‘cosmogenic ecosophy’ aims to abstain from alienated capitalist reality and to recreate extra social condition by finding new visual combinations (deliberately not much appealing ones) and perceptual gateways/obstructions. Thus, her art pieces act as some sort of stimuli ie. reminders of what we where and where we are to go. Known physicality subtracted, imaginary potential extended. And we feel estranged. This strategy is quite present in her performative media work "Tab_letter" synthesizing new media, music and language systems or analogue spatial drawings "Imprints outside the rules" tackling the posthuman condition.

25 years after the introduction of the WWW, some state that the Information Age is coming to an end. It is followed by what we could call Experience Age. So, where are we now, confronted with the changing context of our interactions and global neoliberal stratospheres? The attitude of Martina Zelenika and her chameleonic art projects strive to shape different art devices/environments for somewhat different interactions. Outside of given informational accumulations and comfort boxes. A closer overview of the titling of Martina Zelenika’s art projects implies the heterogeneous, transmedia and interdisciplinary character of her work, as well as the possible postinternet interpretational frame. Here are some mentions: New Europe (the sound of mineral stones), Architecture of the Universe (photo collages), Imprints outside the rules (large analogue drawings), Tab_letter (innovative multidisciplinary project), Virtual__station (Net Art), etc. Hence, this multi-visual artist, based in Zagreb, and formed in graphics and new media in Zagreb and Ljubljana, with each and every recent work, engages innovative technological possibilities and digital art tools in order to translate and resist the complacency of the present society and try to overcome our general human condition.
