Uršula Berlot (1973), after graduating from the High School of Natural Sciences, studied philosophy for two years at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana, then painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design at the University of Ljubljana and at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She obtained her master’s degree in 2002 and her PhD in 2010 from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana, where she has been teaching at the Department of Theoretical Sciences since 2009. She works as a visual artist, art theorist, and lecturer interested in the intersections of art, science, and philosophy. She focuses on invisible and immaterial aspects of reality in artistic creation, often using technologically advanced optical research tools (radiology, microscopy) to explore liminal aspects of perceptual experience. She interweaves different media and genres in experimental and research-oriented artistic practice, such as light and kinetic installations, video, drawing, and virtual digital art. In transdisciplinary projects ˗ video works and light and kinetic installations, she explores various forms and expressions of psycho-emotional spaces, the aesthetic and technical potential of simulated nature, and the relationships between mind, body, and techno-media.
