2. 3.-1. 4. 2012

Marija Mojca Pungercar participates on the Textil{e}tronics exhibition with her project Socialdress.

The curator Deborah Hustic invited four artists: Anda Klancic (Slovenia), Marija Mojca Pungercar (Slovenia), Josipa Stefanec (Croatia), and Patrizia Dona (Croatia). Following the development of a simple thread into complex new media objects, the exhibition will touch upon recent developments in the areas of wearable technology and electronic sculpting through lumino light objects and the presentation of Arduino microcontrollers.

Dealing with sculptural textile (J. Štefanec) and electronic thread (A. Klančić), designed substance and new meanings of objects (P. Dona), as well as socially responsible textile art (M. M. Pungerčar), the exhibition presents an overview of contemporary new media directions and questions the meaning of the medium as such.
