"Discovery" is an interactive art installation, produced by Damjan Jovanovic and Lidija Kljakovic, that aims to engage visitors with the potential of urban rooftop spaces in creating a more sustainable and livable city. The installation is based on a story about the Airborne Collective, a group of radical environmental hackers who seek to create a flourishing ecosystem on the rooftops of downtown LA.

Damjan’s work centers on the exploration of play and space, and his interests lie in investigating questions of contemporary architectural education, authorship and creativity.
