Fotosendimango BridA/bildete sich als Künstlertrio (Jurij Pavlica, Sendi Mango, Tom Kerševan) im Jahr 1996 an der Kunstakademie Venedig. Die Kernthemen ihrer Arbeiten sind die Berühungspunkte und Überschneidungsfelder zwischen künstlerischer und technischer Kreativität. Mit diesem Hintergrund setzte sich das Trio auch mit der Nanotechnologie auseinander. Seit ihrer Gründung stellte BridA/ ihre Arbeiten auf international renommierten Festivals vor. Ein Beispiel hierfür ist das gemeinsam mit dem Karlsruher ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie entwickelte Projekt MODUX (Linz 2008, Ars Electronica; Kassel 2009, documenta)
 
BridA/nanoValley ... »The nano world is fascinating and mysterious. Using nano materials such as carbon nanotubes we can construct new, extremely resistant materials even stronger than natural diamonds. But there are also hidden and unknown traps that can provoke unexpected effects. We still don't know enough about the nanoworld, and we must advance with caution. Nanotechnology is not just a Sunday trip in the countryside; it is much more, playing with the matter in nanoscale can also be very dangerous«

BridA/Nanoplot ... »In Nanoplot, a plotter, an obsolete printing machine from the Eighties, has been adapted to an uncommon operation. The robotic hand of the machine and the noise it makes while working become a paradoxical scenery, an ambiguous world evoked by technology. At the same time, the plotter – normally used for technical drawings – becomes a performer, telling a story and giving it its own peculiar rhythm and time. In this fictional world, the two characters of the story talk about nano particles as their living space. They don't understand the situation, apparently they have been created by chance and for a very short time. Nanoplot is an attempt to explore, with unusual means, a still unknown space-time dimension: the nano world. This world is made of particles that can be manipulated only using special microscopes (such as the Scanning Tunneling Microscope STM, or the Atomic Force Microscope AFM) with a needle as big as a carbon molecule and able to move nano particles«
