About Transmittance

Transmittance explores collaboration which is local, global, networked
and broadcasted. It involves an artistic group of performers, visual

Transmittance is proposed by Maja Delak & Luka Prinčič and is available
as research, educational and/or performance model including a
preparation time and performance event that is streamed on-line.
