BIO//JUDIT EMESE KONOPÁS//
Judit Emese Konopas got in touch with the meaning of space from an early age as she finished her degrees as an architect. She has gained her experience in various architect and interior design offices in London and in Budapest. She was awarded not only for her architectural, but for her photography works as well. Her works – which are primarily based on interaction, communication and juxtaposition, – were presented in several exhibitions throughout Europe. She published worldwide, including the field of interior design, architecture, photography and music.
From the beginning of her professional career, she focused on visualization and form of spaces. Her further interests widely spread into different genres such as architecture, art, music, photography and contemporary dance. After a phase of bouncing around them, she experiments on connecting the different fields and emerging them into her latest project, Earnest Endeavour with 4DSOUND.
