Kärt Ojavee


Ojavee is an artist and designer who combines new technologies with traditional craft. Her approach to textiles is conceptual, exploring their historical meaning and possibilities for future development. 

Ojavee’s interactive textiles and installations often feature electronic components that speculate on future possibilities, characterised by their ability to change during their life cycle. She is interested in the transformation of materials over time, and ways in which the materials are in symbiosis with their environment.

In addition to developing smart textiles, Ojavee creates experimental materials and has recently been working with various surplus materials and seaweed biomass, focusing on the value of matter. 

She is a visiting professor at the Estonian Academy of Arts textile department and head of the Craft Studies MA program. In addition to academic research and creating new materials, she is also a musician and creates stage designs and costumes.
