We meet at the intersection of art, technology, and performance.
Here and now we want to create and explore together,
Sharing our attention to detail,
Building up journeys, visions, and mystical experiences,
Offering our full presence, love, and intuition.

Nadia Petković is a berlin-based artist whose work expresses a return to nature, often referencing alternate realities, like dreams or utopias. She uses the mediums of illustration, painting and digital drawing as a way to connect elements of nature with the human condition, amplifying natural scenery, composing surreal imagined worlds and employing symbols, to observe a universal symbiosis. Her work responds to human dissociation from nature, in which the dominant worldview has forgotten our interdependence. She uses art as a way to communicate and navigate the tensions between what we see as divided or separated: nature and us, mind and body, interior and exterior, the individual and the collective.
Alex Forge is a film director, and a creator of images and imaginary worlds. Starting at a young age, he brought together talented artists and technicians for a variety of audiovisual projects.

Parallel, alternate, overlapping realities, embedded infinitely within one another... what do we see when we look in the mirror and what peers back at us? With GhostRaum, Alex's experience in designing powerful and evocative images brings him to envision the most ambitious visual creations.
