Troika
www.troika.uk.com

Troika  (est. 2003, UK) was founded by Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany), Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel (b. 1977, France) who met while studying at the Royal College of Art, London. Together, they have backgrounds in graphics, art, product design and engineering and their work can be positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. Troika has exhibited internationally and is represented in the permanent collections of the British Council, the Israel Museum Jerusalem, V&A and MoMA, New York.

In 2010 Troika were selected to create three art installations for the UK Pavilion at the World Expo Shanghai, China.

Troika has authored two books to date: Digital by Design, Thames and Hudson, 2008; Moscow Style, Booth- Clibborn Editions, 2005. In 2009 Troika won the D&AD Yellow Pencil for their sculpture 'Cloud' in London Heathrow Terminal 5, and in 2011, for their work 'Palindrome' at the V&A.

Digital Zoetrope, 2008
Troika is a cross-disciplinary practice that links traditional design practices with new technologies.
Here, a bespoke computer programme controls the pulsing light emitted from the centre of the zoetrope, making the fractured typeface readable. The text relates to individual experiences of living
in London. Voices float to the surface for an instant, only to submerge again into a sea of unreadable code.
Lacquered wood, Lambda print, custom LED light engine, electronic components and PIC microcontroller.
