Bajczàr Trend & Design &ndash Hungary / BUDAPEST

21-24 November 2015

 

This year our annual conference took place in the Hungarian capital of Budapest. These meetings, presentations and group workshops are set up and organized by 15 member countries additionally, this year, however, we were also treated to a 16th offering from a candidate member team looking to represent Denmark at the conference in future years. Bajczàr Trend & Design group hosted the show, which aims to predict and propose future trends to look into for coming seasons through countless shows, performances and intellectual/creative food for thought. With 50 years of consistently staying ahead of the curve, INTERCOLOR again represented a crowning achievement in the world of fashion a yearly ritual, vibrant and all-encompassing. 

&ldquoMIGRATION&rdquo, in its most obvious manifestation has become a hot topic in the current time. But we aimed to stretch the meaning of the term from its most obvious form to something which springs to mind less. Changing locations, sudden shocks, the transformation of places and things, unexpected life-changing moments. Winter 2017-2018 aims to take this as its guiding inspiration, and express those unexpected changes. Ümit Ünal and Özlem Süer headed the Turkish delegation, 34.Color.Ist, yet again this year, focusing their demonstration on &ldquoEUNOIA&rdquo, a concept developed by Korean-American artist Lisa Park, focusing on the beauty of ideas, thoughts and feelings particularly the thoughts we put a lot of focus on. 

Park&rsquos &ldquoEUNOIA II&rdquo conceptual art piece featured 48 bowls of water, representing the 48 emotions humans deal with in regular life, arranged into a circle, which &ndash through EEG &ndash could be made to ripple individually using the brain waves of the artist having tuned each to respond to a particular emotion. Essentially, the result is that the water becomes another means of expression for the artist. The obvious question then being, if not the body, then what are the limits of what our mind can control and express itself through?

 

The group&rsquos second suggestion was another art piece my American artist Dennis Hlynsky. Hlynsky&rsquos &ldquoFlight of a Small Brown Moth&rdquo uses a manual camera to focus on a single butterfly with slow motion details. The effect is a unique collage, which was deemed impressive and inspiring enough for the entire assembly to vote it as the best visual guide for the coming season. The performance was vibrant, colorful and moving.

In the conference, sensory and smart technology was a recurring theme of discussion and most interestingly, the idea of TECHNOID and CUTE ROBOTS. In a number of areas it appears clear that tomorrow&rsquos robots will be the love children of current technological achievements. Programable technology is particularly interesting when it is imbibed with a learning element. It is widely agreed &ndash and verifyable through data &ndash that robots, much like our own biological children, may soon have the power to learn by sight, experience, trial and error.

 

We came up with a new color palette for the season also this consisted of the four colors of green, safron, beige, and techno black. The combination is full of dynamism and energy and is balanced out with pastel tones, metalic colors, transparant and shading.

And here are all the themes, and subthemes we have honed in on for inspiration&hellip MIGRATION HUMANITY, TENSIONS, DIVERGENCE, BREAKING THE BOX, MILLENNIALS&hellip SENSITIVE TECHNOLOGY FRAGILE SCIENCE, TECHNOID, CUTE ROBOTS, DIGITAL MUTATION, ARTIFICIAL COOLNESS and INTUITION&hellip HAPPY DISOBEDIENCE DISTORTION, UPSET CONVENTIONS, STRANGENESS, UNIQUE PERSONALITY, SELF-EXPRESSION, RE-GENERATION and SENSE OF HUMOUR&hellip GLITCHING CRAFT OUTLANDISH, RE-CULTURE, REVEAL MATTER, MAXIMALISM, UNLIKELY JUXTAPOSITIONS and FANTA ORBIT&hellip EUNOIA  BEAUTIFUL THINKING, BALANCE, NEW HARMONY IN DIVERSITY, SECRET LUXURY, COEXISTENCE and ETHICAL.

LISA PARK &ndash &ldquoEunoia II&rdquo

 

&ldquoEunoia II&rdquo involves using a commercial brainwave (EEG) headset as a self-monitoring tool to measure a performer&rsquos physical and psychological states. This performance obtains a real-time feedback of a performer&rsquos emotional reactions. Throughout the performance of &ldquoEunoia II&rdquo, the intensity of a performer&rsquos feelings at the time are mirrored in the intensity of the sound in terms of volume, pitch, speed, and the panning of the sound output. As a result, the water responded in real-time creating different formations of ripples and droplets in unpredictable patterns.

American-born and Korean-raised, Lisa Park is and interdisciplinary artists who is currently based in New York. She is a recipient of NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) a fellowship in the category of Digital/Electronic arts. She has been selected for NEW INC., New Museum&rsquos first museum-led incubator program in art, technology and design since the Fall of 2014. Her works where featured on Wired, The Creators Project, The New York Times&rsquo Bits Blog, Time Out New York and many others. Park&rsquos work investigates a new form of expression and trans-sensory experiences. She developed a series of performances using biosensors (brainwave heart-rate devices) as a medium for manifesting her inner states.
