Troika is a multi-disciplinary art and design practice based in London.
With backgrounds in graphics and communication, art, product design and engineering, the collective’s approach focuses on merging the arts and design disciplines. To date, Troika’s work has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Tate Britain, and MoMa New York. In 2009 they won the D&AD Yellow Pencil for their digital sculpture Cloud in London Heathrow Terminal 5, and they have been commissioned to design 3 walkway installations for the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo.
The Electroprobe allows you to access the silent language of our surroundings by translating the electro-magnetic spectrum of electronic objects into sound. Acting as a magnetic microphone for a parallel soundscape, the probe reveals a soundscape you have never heard before.
With the Electroprobe we may listen to our electronic surroundings: electric babblings, magnetic hums, and inaudible whistles. Electronic objects now have a rich vocabulary; thinking, dreaming and arguing through a system of electronic brainwaves, organic signals, bluetooth monologues and wireless fantasy. The Electroprobes let us explore our relation to what we perceive as inanimate objects, revealing a secret sonic world.
