Boštjan Čadež (1979) is a media artist. He studied industrial design at ALUO in Ljubljana. During his studies, he received an award for a special student achievement for the design of the tyre called Sporty which is still produced and sold by the Sava company. At the same time, he was an active graffiti artist and he released three compilations of sound-responsive animations on the website of the then-popular mp3 player Winamp. With the interactive computer game Line Rider (2006), designed under the supervision of Prof Zdravko Papić, he was successful in the global market and for this work he received a prestigious award for innovation at the computer game developers’ summit in San Francisco. At the 13th Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (2008), he and Velibor Barišič (Veli Silver) conceived the PPP box project, which provided a framework within which several dozens of artists exhibited their works in important galleries locally and internationally.

He is active in the field of video projection generated in real time. He is one of the key artists in the field of video mapping of architecture and interiors in Slovenia. Together with media artist Marko Batista, he conceived the performance Timing Diagrams (Kino Šiška, Old Power Station, +MSUM, 2013). In 2013, he also received the Zlata ptica award in the category of intermedia art. In the same year, he developed the robot installation Self-Portrait (Aksioma Project Space, 2013), produced by the Aksioma Institute. With video projections in real time, he is active as a member of the expanded team of the art collective Cirkulacija 2, with which he mapped the façade of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU, 2010), among other things. Within the framework of Cirkulacija 2, he conceived several video mapping surfaces in projects URBI et ORBI/Total Art Platform (Svetlobna gverila, Kino Šiška and Tovarna Rog, 2011), Total Art Platform: Noise as a Metaphor (Močvara Gallery, Zagreb, 2012), in Cirkulacija 2 with all-night group art performances such as Noise is Us: Space Time (2014), RadArt #6 :: Radar Rhizome (2015), Noise is Us::Cultural Interfaces (2015), Welcome to ATT/AND (Ljubljana, Reka, 2016), and a solo presentation with the installation Swarm (2016). In collaboration with artist Neven Korda, he developed video projections for larger architectural surfaces in the series Parallel Worlds (Paralelni svetovi, AKC Metelkova City, 2006–2011); with Korda, he also conceived a live generated video-dance performance Echoes (Old Power Station, 2009). With the work Tekstom(l)at created in collaboration with artist Lina Rica, he participated in the group exhibition Zig Zag (Škuc Gallery, City of Women, 2015) and in the 8th Triennial of Contemporary Art – U3 (Museum of Modern Art, Ljubljana, 2016). With the work Alphabet Soup, he appeared at the 18th International Festival of Contemporary Art Practices Pixxelpoint (City Gallery Nova Gorica, 2017).
