The interdisciplinary artist MOON a.k.a. Martina Zelenika is visionary artist with a unique artistic expression. Artsist MOON combines the must up-to-date digital technology along with an analogue one to embody spiritual dimension of cosmology and eco-philosophy. By deconstructing sound and meta-language, the artist tests out modern communication space and in doing so provoke us to dive deeper into our own sense of togetherness and find a blissful serenity of universal unity.

In her work we notice procedures of a new approach in questioning of today’s contemporary society, resulting with art projects such as: “Tab_Letter” (innovative concept with minimalistic musical letters), “New Europe” (a scientific art project – the sounds of mineral stones, interactive audio-visual installation), “Meta-Signal Sonar System” (visualisation of universal sound, sublimation of intuition, analogue drawing and digital tools); “6th SENSE” audio-visual interactive collages (analogue -digital synergy, Augumnted Reality application and analogue drawing collages), “Architecture of the Universe” (a complex photo collages made from many layers, processes and different mediums), etc. Martina is a representative of a new movement of contemporary and new media art scene in Croatia.
