Podcast: Marko Peljhan

Article PhotoIn this episode, the fifth of six from Luminous Green, I speak with Slovenian-born multimedia performance artist Marko Peljhan, coordinator of Project Atol, Makrolab, and Insular Technologies, a high-frequency global radio network initiative. For the past few years Marko has been overseeing the design for the Arctic and Antarctic Makrolab projects, within the larger framework of the I-TASC (Interpolar Transnational Art and Science Consortium). Prior, he co-founded one of the first open access digital media labs in Eastern Europe (in Ljubljana), worked at Ljudmila (Ljubljana Digital Media Lab) as program director, and served as the flight director of seven art- and science-related parabolic flights with the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Moscow. In 2000 he received the special Medienkunst prize at the ZKM; in 2001 the Golden Nica Prix at Ars Electronica (with Carsten Nicolai); and in 2004 the second prize of the UNESCO Digital Media Art Award.
