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.

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’.

Adult £10, student/ concession £7.50, Members £9

Troika is a collaborative contemporary art practice formed by Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel in 2003. Their work features in the permanent collections of M+, Hong Kong, the Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Art Institute of Chicago & MoMA. In 2010, Troika was commissioned to produce installations for the UK Pavilion, designed by Heatherwick Studio, at the Shanghai Expo.
