Emoke Lorincz's desire to create does not focus on a single medium, her experience and curiosity in IT environment, her desire to connect the past with the present manifested in a joint project with the Hungarian Museum of Ethnography/Zsuzsanna Tasnádi. With almost 10 years of preparatory work, as the creator, project owner and the leader of the project team, first, the database of vectorized decoration of 1,300 selected objects of the collection was created. Then, based on this database, with a the team of mathematicians and programmers of MOON42, they created MotifCreator application which is touchscreen installation and web application.
An updated version of which will be presented in the Hungarian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023 next to the winning entry, REZIDOOM – The Frequency of Architecture.

The motifs can be easily filtered by tags or location. It is possible to view a photograph of the carrier object, its details, data, including its place of origin. The application gives access to the user to create freely and creatively immersed in a treasure trove of motifs.
995 008 996 000+
The number of variations that can be created with motif generators is endless, so no two visitors will ever create the same work. The goal was to contribute to the integration of the motif treasure into a system and thus to their accessibility as public treasure.
