Damjan is an architect, educator and software designer. He works as a Full-Time faculty at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles.

Damjan’s work centers on the development of experimental software, and his interests lie in investigating the culture and aesthetics of software platforms, as well as questions of contemporary design education, authorship and creativity.

as if they were flowers

a multimodal exhibition

With the exhibition “as if they were flowers”, we conclude a year of work centered on the topic of “autonomous systems”. A group of young artists explores the boundaries of autonomy and entanglement related to the question “what / where is the autonomous self?”. The project unfolded across several iterations where discussions, ideas and artworks were generated that will be presented in an unfolding exhibition that happens both on-site in Graz and online at MozillaHubs.
