Thursday March 27th, 19:00 at Bubi in Kadiƶy, Istanbul (an amberPlatform talk)

Mika and Hannah have been collaborating together since 2006 under the name KOBAKANT. In their work they merge electronics and textiles in order to explore topics ranging from wearable technology to future craftsmanship. In this talk they will introduce a range of their works, including their most recent project which brings them to Istanbul to learn igne oyasi.

KOBAKANT’s early works include a wearable game interface, motion capture costumes for performance and an open library of textile sensor designs. More recent works include the WishLab Factory for Handmade Technologies and The Crying Dress.
