Reimagining the future: a conversation with Bojana Ginn
September 14, 2017
By Laura Relyea

Since moving to the United States from Serbia in 2002, Bojana Ginn has captured the imaginations of innumerable art lovers, gallerists and scientists alike with her two- and three-dimensional ephemeral works that explore issues on the forefront in the realms of science and mathematics — the ethics of bioengineering, meddling with the human genome and developments in artificial intelligence. In the past few years, her work has taken her everywhere from the Venice Biennale to the 2015 Beings Summit to MOCA GA where she was recently named a 2017–18 Working Artist Project Recipient.

Review: Science meets play in Bojana Ginn’s “Liquid Lines” at Further Art
August 1, 2013
By Dinah McClintock

When one of my students writes “Monet played with color” or “Rembrandt played with light,” my impulse is to correct them, insisting that artists’ deployment of formal elements and manipulation of their medium are more deliberate and thought-based than mere “play.” But Bojana Ginn’s “Liquid Lines,” at Further Art through August 20, demonstrates that “play” can be a mechanism to reveal the unexpected potential of medium and image.
