Marica Radojcic

By education I am mathematician (studied mathematics because of art for I wanted some other art). For many years I was university professor at University of Belgrade (the Faculty of Mathematics and University of Art); visiting professor/researcher at University of California, Berkeley, University of Hamburg, University of Bonn, MGU
- Moscow etc. Fulbright award for mathematics 1985/6. Mathematical papers from abstract algebra, mathematical logic, mathematical linguistics, numerical mathematics. Last five years I run UMNA-Art&Science, an independent organization from Belgrade.
In my art (based on mathematics and philosophy which usually are covered in some deeper layers) several ideas have been dominant:
-INFINITY (which is closely related to the idea of GOD)
-DEATH (particularly the tinny line between Death and Life)
-LANGUAGE (natural and abstract languages, roots of natural language, layers of meaning, language as visual media...)
-BRANCHING (as particular sort of potential infinity present in many aspects of human life, but also in the theoretical sciences like mathematics, physics, informatics)
-HUMAN LIMITS (limits of our world, of free will, of knowledge...)
