Kruno Jošt’s project is based on the use of new media and unconventional methods, process-oriented, with an accent on collaborative and participatory practices. PLATFORM FOR TRANSDISCIPLINARY PRACTICES challenges the connection between technologies, public space, urban daily life and spirituality. It is characterised by the use of a geodesic dome as a space of common action. The geodesic dome is specific in form and acoustic possibilities, bringing to life the ideas of its creator, architect and visionary Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), and at the same time it denotes a quest for sustainability in present times. The platform consist of a geodesic dome, eight meters wide in diameter and 3.6 meters high (ca 50 square meters), taking power from photovoltaic cells. The space of this laboratory where art meets science is meant as a stage for audiovisual experiments, filming, radio broadcasts, plays and ad hoc episodes…

Kruno Jošt holds an MA in new media arts from Transart Institute. His interdisciplinary art practice uses new media and unconventional methods to explore society, media, culture, new technologies and awareness.  A common trait of Jošt’s works is his interest in the process and not the final product, as well as in the unconventional display method which stimulates group activity through collaborative and participative practices.
He won the Croatian Ministry of Culture’s award for best electronic musical piece in 2007, and in 2009 he was awarded for the best collaborative work of located media at ArteMove Festival in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In 2013 he participated at the Pixelache Festival in Helsinki as a curator; curated the exhibition Beyond the Boundaries at the Scheier Gallery in Čakovec, Croatia, and exhibited at MMC Zavod K6/4 in Ljubljana.

Projekt Krune Jošta baziran je na korištenju novih medija i nekonvencionalnih metoda, s naglaskom na procesualnost i suradničke prakse. PLATFORMA ZA TRANSDISCIPLINARNE PRAKSE  propituje odnose između tehnologija, javnog prostora, urbane svakodnevice i duhovnosti. Karakterizira ju korištenje geodezijske kupole kao prostora za zajedničko djelovanje. Geodezijska kupola dijelom oživljava zamisli svog tvorca, arhitekta i vizionara Buckminstera Fullera (1895. – 1983.), a ujedno označava potragu za održivošću u današnjici.
Platforma se sastoji iz geodezijske kupole promjera 8 metara i visine 3,6 m (cca 50 m²), sa strujom dobivenom iz sunčanih ćelija. U vidu umjetničko-znanstvenog laboratorija postavljenog u samo središte grada (na Gatu Karoline Riječke), postaje pozornica za odvijanje audio-vizualnih eksperimenata, projekcija, radio prijenosa, igre i ad hoc epizoda…

Kruno Jošt, nove medijske umjetnosti magistrirao pri Transart Institutu. Njegova transdisciplinarna umjetnička praksa kroz korištenje novih medija te izborom nekonvencionalnih metoda obuhvaća proučavanje društva, medija, kulture, novih tehnologija i svjesnosti. Zajedničko u Joštovim radovima je njegov interes za proces, a ne u izradi krajnjeg djela te u ne-konvencionalnom načinu izlaganja koje inicira grupno djelovanje kroz suradničke i participativne prakse.
Dobitnik je nagrade Ministarstva kulture Republike Hrvatske za najbolje elektronsko glazbeno djelo 2007. godine, a 2009. godine nagrađen je za najbolji suradnički rad lociranih medija na festivalu ArteMove u Belo Horizonte, Brazil. 2013. godine sudjelovao je kao kustos na Pixelache festivalu u Helsinkiju, kurirao je izložbu “Iza granica” u galeriji Scheier u Čakovcu, izlagao u MMC Zavoda K6/4 u Ljubljani.
