About The Talk

A Studio Between Two Worlds

The work of Cabeza Patata has always been interdisciplinary in nature, combining digital and analogue methods and techniques. These two apparently opposing methods influence each other and have helped form the style which characterises Cabeza Patata's work.

 

In this talk, the studio's directors, Katie and Abel, will explain the day-to-day of studio life and how they divide their time between large commercial campaigns for clients like Google, Spotify and Microsoft, and personal work and experimentation, as they explore new techniques and combine materials to keep their style fresh and innovative. This includes both computer-based projects and crafts created in their Barcelona workshop, using materials like wood, fabrics, 3D printing, laser cut and the creation of patterns and textile design.
