Frederico Fellini ones said that “A different language is a different vision of life.”Translation flowers is an all female group whose members are Inkeri Jantti (FI), Nancy Dewhurst (UK) and Suncica Pasuljevic Kandic (RS). "Translation flowers" is an English translation of the Finnish word "käännöskukkaset". It refers to the ironical, weird and in most cases bad word translation of the TV shows. Coming from three different language and cultural backgrounds the group is interested in exploring these different visions. Seeking out other modes of collaboration, communication and language they work at the intersection of various media. Thanks to TaikaBox we now continue to collaborate through practice-led art research as an artist trio

Ambient practicums is a series of spacial experiments by students of the 2nd year of the New Media Art department. Moving towards awareness of the ambiance of space in the context of art is moving towards conscious sensitivity to the environment. This requires the exploration of spatial relations of space, practically moving and acting within the space and communicating with it. Students' interventions in the space of the 3×3 gallery present expressions of this experimental exploration and conceptualization of space. Thus we witness the physical and ambient transforming of space that becomes social, artistic, meaningful and psychological. The 3×3 program: Ambient Practicums is the result of a collaboration between the Department of New Media Art and the Youth Center CK13, led by Stevan Kojic, Suncica Pasuljevic Kandic and Borislav Prodanovic. The project will continue to develop every winter semester.

As artists and academics we always think how can we approach new generations of emerging artist and engage them directly in to the art scene. Young Danube Stream was an exhibition that enable our students to gain practical knowledge and experience. The exhibition gathered students works that responded to the subject of water in a way that is engaging them and challenges them to create in a domain that is outside of their everyday learning practice. We saw water as a tool and material of art making and as a teaching tool. Through mentorship sessions and group workshops we worked with students of Fine art department on visual research related to water. The result we got showed a spectrum of diverse modes of thinking and making.

The Techno-Ecologies project was devoted to building a collaboration platform, which will support artistic and creative explorations towards sustainable future development. The core of the project consisted of 3 countries Finland, Latvia and Serbia with external collaboration with France, Litvania and Netherlands (Baltan Laboratories /The Netherlands/, Ars Longa /France/, Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Arts Academy /Lithuania, Chant des Possibles /France/, Van Abbemuseum /The Netherlands/
The idea of the project was to make the important next step not only to disseminate the results of novel artistic research on sustainable future to wider public (through project activities), but also to extend the level of collaboration by linking up the NGO field (culture, social, activism) with established institutions (universities, museums), thus integrating these new (or other ) experiences into an existing (culture and education) system and allowing the project to achieve the aim of contributing to the greater benefit for the society.
