Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Louise Gibson is a Scottish contemporary artist known for her massive sculptures made of metal scraps and found materials such as old clothes. Gibson was born in Edinburgh, in 1985. She grew up in the inspiring capital of Scotland where she attended Edinburgh College of Art earning a B.A. (Hon.) in Sculpture in 2009.

In her artistic practice, metal scraps play an important role. Gibson fuses found gadget with sculpted casts to make complex, boldly artworks. She produces the moulds for her pieces herself, individually honing the resin recipe for each distinct sculpture. In her energetic body of work, Gibson explores the way people interact with their surroundings.
