Tamara Anna Efrat has created this Crafted Technology project in collaboration with the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and the Hebrew University. With the help of eight algorithms, she changed the patterns of traditional smock embroidery to create her textile pieces. Crafted Technology was a collaboration project of Tamara Anna Efrat with Moran Mizrahi and Amit Zoran from Hebrew University’s computer science department.
With a background in textile design, materials have a primary role for her in both the process as well as the final objects. Through challenging and refining methods from this field, unexpected things occur which lead to new ways of making and producing. Luminous Shapes is an ongoing collection investigating how people understand and interpret experimental product design.
