The transit lounge is the archetypal transit space, the point where the hyper-global + hyper-local coincide; a location which blurs traditional conceptions of geo-political boundaries, creating pockets of international space within the borders of individual nation-states. An in-between space, it exists relative to a fixed departure and arrival point, not to the area that surrounds it.

The Transit Lounge is a series of overlapping residencies for Australian and German artists and architects in Berlin. It is also a blog where themes relating to the project will develop, collaborations will be initiated and sustained, and observations on the city collected. The Transit Lounge invites you to participate in these transnational conversations by commenting on the blog.

Perpetually seduced by the 4 dimensional and captivated by light; immersive environments have evolved. Concerned with the conception and representation of the future - projects investigate the social and psychological ramifications of the evolution of technology and aspire to assist in the positive reconstruction there of. Environments exist and are experienced in the threshold between the external and internal, real and virtual.

Having studied as a graphic designer at Monash University Melbourne, Kristina Matovic devoted her 4th year to the research and development of META_ME, or later know as ISTGAMN (inflatable seat that glows and makes noise). This project was concerned with the negotiation of duel realities and manifest as a seating ‘device’ that utilized methods of physical isolation. META_ME was shown at Technikunst: Flesh vs Machine and further exhibitions and collaborations developed including: Two Point Two, Nextwave – Containers Project and the opening of Liquid Architecture 7.
