Join the arts collective Troika in a talk about colour, perception and spatial experience, and what it means to be human in an age of technology.

What to expect

With a particular interest in perception and spatial experience, Troika’s works challenges our prescriptions of knowledge and control, and seeks to make sense of human relationships with technology.

As a collective, Troika work across drawing, sculpture and immersive installations. Their projects merge digital and high-technologies with natural processes and materials (including high voltage electricity, computer algorithms, industrial acid, optics, soot and 3D programmes). In doing so, they seek to investigate the coalescence of seemingly irreconcilable opposites — nature and technology, the virtual and the real, the human and the non-human.

This talk sheds light on Troika’s practice through an exploration into their experiments with colour, light and technology.

The event coincides with the Design Museum exhibition ‘Breathing Colour by Hella Jongerius’.
