Cool Hunting Video Presents: Troika

Troika, a multi-disciplinary art and design studio in Brixton, London, exploits technology and subversion in their conceptual work

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 24 November 2006

The techno-subversiveness of Troika's mobile phone-controlled Tool for Armchair Activists and SMS Guerilla Projector initially caught CH's attention a couple years back. Episode 56 of Cool Hunting Video visits the now three year-old, multi-disciplinary art and design studio in Brixton, London to meet the founding trio of international designers behind Troika, Eva Rucki, Sebastian Noel and Conny Freyer, and to see their conceptual work in action. You'll hear the Tool for Armchair Activists narrate, see the SMS Guerilla Projector's text on the wall and in the street and get an electromagnetic tour of Troika's office with the Electroprobe, a tool that translates sounds made by electronics.
