Co-organized with the Estonian Institute, in partnership with Budapest Design Week
EJTECH is an experimental art and technology lab based in Budapest, founded by Esteban de la Torre (MEX) and Judit Eszter Kárpáti (HUN). They explore HCI (Human-Computer-Interaction) via alternative interfaces, e-textiles, new materials and interactive installations, while focusing their artistic research on the overlapping dimensions between sound and textiles.
EJTECH presents a pop-up interactive installation at Trafó Club as part of Design Week Budapest’s official programme, intervening and redesigning Trafós’s smART! window display to celebrate our 20th season. Their work focuses on the exploration of a new materiality, experimental interaction and techno-spiritualism and they will exhibit some of their most recent new wave interfaces and affiliated soundscapes. Cuatro Tiempos is an aesthetic analysis on the perception of time: 4 compositions for the past, present and future.
Kristi Kuusk graduated in 2011 from the Estonian Academy of Arts fashion design course. Her graduation project, focusing on using new technologies for sustainability in fashion design in today’s context, led her to look deeper into smart textile services. Having worked in both the garment production sector and at a software development company, she tries to merge the two otherwise separate and even controversial areas together, in order to discover new opportunities for socially-relevant applications in the emerging smart textiles field.
How can traditional crafts influence the worlds of developing technology and garments? Kristi Kuusk’ presentation introduces new perspectives about the future of textiles.
