Sonja Zelic

As a visual artist and filmmaker, Sonja works across a range of media including installation, audio, video and non-fiction creative writing. Her work explores the complexity of communication, and is informed by stories, conversations, research, personal experience and our relationship with the physical, social, and emotional environment.

She is currently exploring the creative possibilities generated by differences between neurotypical and neurodivergent styles of communication, using sound, image, text and data. Sonja also devises participatory initiatives that respond to people, place and circumstance, and seek to engender relationships between people and place — working as an artist on the ground in local communities where she has lived, worked or studied, finding languages and spaces in which to collaborate and communicate meaningfully with others.
