Participant Profile

Ivaylo Hristov


An installation, sculpture, photo and video artist, Ivaylo Hristov’s work is often based on questions related to the objectives of space missions, but in the context of everyday life. Where to look for wealth? What is truly valuable today? How do we see our own future and the future of the planet and humanity? In his exploration of the problems of the modern world and the role of humans in the era of robotization and digitization, Ivaylo closely collaborates with communities collecting and documenting narratives, interviews and stories. His current solo exhibition LIGHTFLIGHT explores the topic of the cosmos and the boundaries of what is possible.

During his residency, Ivaylo intended to meet with members of both scientific and non-scientific communities to learn about their perspectives on current events and scientific achievements in space and how they affect people’s everyday lives and dreams.
