    The submitted project ‘From Marsh to Modern Living’ is one of the key exhibits of the recently opened Museum Hoge Woerd. It offers a stunning experience of the ‘biography’ of the Leidsche Rijn area, a recent town development of the City of Utrecht. The 360° panoramic movie starts about 3,000 years ago, when prehistoric farmer-gathererss deposited a red deer antler in a riverbed. Time accelerates and then pauses again as the visitor witnesses an Iron Age midwinter fest, and the emergence of the Roman frontier along the river Rhine. Dramatic changes of scenery occur as we witness the main periods of human occupation: prosperous farmers in the Early Middle Ages, the construction of castles in …

    Galerija Matice srpske

    The video "Waggle Dance" has emerged within the project "Beehive. Tradition and Contemporary Art" of the Gallery of Matica srpska in 2016. The Gallery has invited contemporary artists to interpret its symbol – the beehive. Igor Antić is one of the artists who interpreted the symbol through the medium of video. Scientist Karl von Frisch discovered in 1919 that bees possess a specific communication system based on movement, visual benchmarks, smell and sound. He called it the "Waggle Dance". Years later, a German-Danish team of researchers was able to construct a micro-robot that faithfully reproduces bee vibration and movement, which is also able to create new, quirky bee dances. Thus, …
