- Project Developer
Miha Turšič is project developer for the Open Wetlab at Waag. He works on international collaboration and the initiation of projects touching on the themes of art-science, biotechnology, digital fabrication, open source hardware, ecology, space culture and material research. He is closely involved with the planet B narrative and he is the founder of Open Space Lab within Waag.
Miha works with the partners in the European S+T+ARTS collaboration, operating on the crossings of science, technology and the arts, where he focuses on methodology for collaborative innovation. He was involved in a number of leading Waag projects such as OpenNext, promoting concern-driven innovation through open source hardware, and Surpre:organism, focusing on new space narratives.
Miha studied Industrial Design at the University of Ljubljana. He is co-founder of Asobi Design Studio and KSEVT, the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies. Nowadays, KSEVT is developing a cultural space programme, enabling the understanding of art, culture and humanities in outer space. In collaboration with both space and cultural organisations, KSEVT produced cultural programmes on the International Space Station, introduced space architecture to the biennial of Venice, and presented Voyager instruments to the public for the first time in history. Miha is also founder and part of the Postgravityart group, which produced the very first theatre production in zero gravity and works on the 50-year performance project Noordung 1995-2045.
