Robertina Šebjanič (SI) is an internationally exhibited and awarded artist/researcher. She is working the fields of living systems (bio-art) and sound art, dealing predominantly with the cultural, political and biological realities of marine and aquatic environments, not least for their obscured visions in the human imaginaries.

Her projects are often realised in collaboration with others (artists, scientists, makers, hackers…), through interdisciplinary and informal integration in her work. Her art-research focus for the past several years has been oriented towards Living systems (bio-art), AV performances, noise/sound art, installations and interactive ambient responsive immersive environments. 

Her projects range between rethinking of future speculations of new trans-species (Humalga), animal-machine-human relationships, regenerative medicine and the “hunt for eternal youth” and inter-species communication (the series of works Aurelia 1+Hz), sonification of the chemical process (Time Displacement), and pointing out underwater noise pollution and its potential ecological consequences and challenges (Aquatocene).

Robertina was awarded with Honorary Mention @Prix Ars Electronica 2016 Interactive Art+  for the project  Aurelia 1+Hz / proto viva sonification, a nomination for STARTS2020 for project aqua_forensic, a nomination for STARTS2016  for the project Time displacement /Chemobrionic garden and nomination for the White Aphroid award for the project Aquatocene / Subaquatic quest for serenity.  Robertina was SHAPE platform artist 2017.
