Ett vackert interaktivt ljuslandskap växer fram med Malin Bobeck Tadaas digitala textilverk

Malin Bobeck Tadaa is an awarded textile artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. With her self-developed methodology of weaving LEDs, sensors, and electronics, into fabrics, she creates one-of-a-kind artworks. The optical fibers make her art both visual and tactile and invite the visitor to interact and influence it. The audience doesn’t just admire her art, they become a part of her installations.

Her art is inspired by the human imagination, deep sea, outer space, and the worlds that are hidden from us. By creating spaces with inspiration from these worlds she gives the viewer an experience of shifted perspectives. She has an array of successful projects and exhibitions behind her.

She has previously exhibited in the Nationalmuseum Design, Gothenburg Art Museum, Borås Textile Museum, and KTH in Stockholm where her biggest installation so far, Emerging Sensation, took place in January 2019 and attracted over 4000 visitors and was funded by The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.

She has also been featured in many industry magazines and blogs, been on Swedish national television, and has delivered a TEDx talk about being guided by one’s fears. She has been awarded several art grants for her innovative work, such as the “Encouragement of research” from the Sten A Olsson foundation in December 2015, with the motivation:
