...a new world is opening up, here the scale is distorted and you go from being just one human to become a force as strong as life itself. Welcome to an artistic experience that lets you widen your senses in a land between digital and real.
Emerging Sensation is an art installation, where the visitor is invited to experience the art while also being a part of it. With unique technology, artist Malin Bobeck Tadaa has brought together smart textiles that change color and respond to touch, creating a hybrid world of digital and textile art.
Malin Bobeck Tadaa is a digital textile artist that integrates LEDs, sensors and electronics into her textile work. In this way, her art comes alive and invites the visitor to interact and influence it. She has previously exhibited in the Nationalmuseum Design, Gothenburg Art Museum and Borås Textile Museum. Emerging Sensation is her biggest installation so far and will take over the entire old reactor hall R1 underneath KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, for a few weeks in January 2019.
The exhibition is recommended from 11 years in company with an adult. This is because we believe the environment can be scary for a child and the reactor hall itself has several rooms that can possibly be dangerous for a small child. Please be mindful if you chose to bring a child.
Emerging Sensation takes place in collaboration with KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Ekelund Weavers and Microsoft. The project has been supported by Kulturbryggan.
