I'm so proud to announce that Kukka's project Living Colour is part of the exhibition EARTH MATTERS in Textile Museum Tilburg. The exhibition is curated by world renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort & Philip Fimmano. 

‘Earth Matters’ refers to the worldwide development regarding sustainability and respect for earth’s resources. In the world of design, science and business, these aspects are of great importance. By using four themes, ‘Honouring Origins’, ‘Collecting Ingredients’, ‘Reinventing Materials’ and ‘Sustaining Production’, the exhibition EARTH MATTERS, gives the visitor a better understanding of a sustainable cycle and the importance of material studies.

The exhibition shows experiments - from fashion to design - that contribute to a sustainable making process, either on a small or a large scale. All projects encourage people to think about the source of materials and the creation process, not only through innovation, but even more by the re-evaluation of crafts and locally produced products.


Living Colour is part of the exhibition’s theme ‘Reinventing Materials’. The exhibition displays two large photos of our material experiments along with the petridishes with our sound experiments.
