Ceturtdien, 4. jūlijā, plkst. 14.00 Dziesmu svētku nedēļā mākslinieces Rāmija Gorišankara (Ramyah Gowrishankar) un Kati Hūpa (Kati Hyyppä) no Somijas aicina uz atvērto elektronisko rokdarbu studiju RIXC Mediju telpā, kuras ietvaros apmeklētāji varēs iepazīties un arī paši iesaistīties elektronisko rokdarbu darināšanā.

Studija būs atvērta no plkst. 14.00 līdz 18.00. Studijas noslēgumā plkst. 18.00 aicinām uz elektronisko rokdarbu publisku prezentāciju. Mākslinieces iepazīstinās ar saviem pētījumiem un pieredzi e-izšūšanā, un parādīs to, kā tradicionāli tekstilizstrādājumi – vainagi vai jostas var kļūt par mūsdienīgi interaktīviem modes dizaina izstrādājumiem, ja tos darinot, izmantojam dažādus elektronikas materiālus – led gaismas un sensorus. Apmeklētājiem būs arī unikāla iespēja pašiem pielaikot Skrundas tradicionālā vainaga elektroniskās versijas.

Abas mākslinieces ir dibinājušas Somijā apvienību “eCrafts” (E-rokdarbi), kas piedāvā dažādām auditorijām, īpaši jauniešiem, apgūt tradicionālo izšūšanu, izmantojot mūsdienīgus elektronikas materiālus. Pētot tradicionālos rokdarbu paraugus, kā arī iedziļinoties vietējās kultūras tradīcijās un folklorā, mākslinieces izmanto elektronikas aksesuārus, lai šos tradicionālos izstrādājumus papildinātu un aktualizētu.

The eCrafts Collective are Ramyah Gowrishankar and Kati Hyyppä who joined their forces in the quest for fascinating, unexpected and delightful combinations of crafts and electronics. Craft knowledge is versatile and has adapted with time to the availability of resources and materials. In todays world, it is possible to think of electronics as another, additional material for crafts. The eCrafts Collective likes to investigate traditional textiles, patterns and craft objects and to get insights to local cultures, traditions, histories and folklores surrounding them. In the course of the explorations, electronics become another ingredient in the mix, used for highlighting and complementing the crafted ‘story’.

“Electronic Crafts” is a part of residency centre SERDE event series that continues to raise awareness on Latvian contemporary cultural heritage and to promote it on an international and interdisciplinary level with the aim to introduce wider audiences with traditional crafts and their contemporary interpretations.
In year 2012 artists recieved a grant for creative work at SERDE residency. As the theme of their work, they chose to investigate the historical Skrunda crown and to reconstrue it by using the method of electronic embroidery. As the result of the residency two Skrunda crown prototypes were made with different electronic variations.
