Adam Somlai-Fisher: Kitchen Budapest - Peer Property's Tangible Beauty?

About

Please join us for a talk by Adam Somlai Fisher on Tuesday 13 May, 6PM at Lecture Theatre 1, Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, SW7 2EU Adam Somlai-Fisher: Kitchen Budapest - Peer Property's Tangible Beauty? By allowing a diverse community to participate in the making of technology systems, the cultural qualities of such a system go beyond the usual 'high tech' and 'smart' qualities, and create something genuine which at the same time does not belong to any single author's or artist's identity but to an undefined group of ‘participants', which itself changes over time. Kitchen Budapest uses this model of work extensively. The lecture will present some of these projects and institutions, and discuss their work methodologies. Adam Somlai-Fischer (b. 1976, Budapest) graduated as an architect at A+URL, Stockholm in 2002. His work takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring cultural potentials of new technologies, collaborating with scientists, engineers, designers, architects and artists. His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2004 and 2006, ISEA Symposium 2004 and 2006, Ars Electronica 2006, Kiasma Museum Helsinki and Ludwig Museum Budapest. Adam Somlai-Fisher is guest researcher at the MOKK Media Research and leads design workshops at Domus Academy, Milan and Goldsmiths College. He is founding director of Kitchen Budapest, a new media research lab involving young researchers who are interested in creating experimental projects in cross-disciplinary teams.
