One of the highlights for me at the Chain Reaction Festival in Skopje has been Natasa Teofilovic's (from Belgrade) "s.h.e." - an installation of a sequence of monitors showing animations of a humanoid character developed from the artist's own body and using HDRI lighting captured in her home. Seeing the character pass through the monitors in sequence is hypnotic. The fact that they don't have eyes and sometimes approximate them by passing their fingers through the back of their skulls is one of the freakiest things I've seen in a long time.
