Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It brings together galleries, art organisations and curatorial groups from around the world who focus on universal concepts and evolutionary processes though the convergence of kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multi-disciplinary new media art, science and technology.
The fair provides an international platform for museums, collectors, curators and the public to view and buy artworks in this thriving and advancing field. Alongside the fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances.
For 2011 a Kinetica feature exhibition and events programme will explore the evolution of the human body, brain, mind and consciousness.
Kinetica Feature Exhibition
The Kinetica feature exhibition will explore the evolution of the human body, brain, mind and consciousness in reference to our place in the universe, where we are at this time, and what it means to be human. The works exhibited aim to increase awareness to the evolution of us as a species and expose various dimensions in our quest to further human potential. The multi-disciplinary works will be representative of matter, waveform, space, time, gravity, spirituality / religion, harmonics, destruction, genetic engineering, modification, behaviour and relationships.
The events programme entitled ”Body, Brain and Consciousness” will run across the three public days of Kinetica Art Fair, from 4th – 6th February 2011. The programme will feature a series of artist presentations and performances showing a new perspective on the functioning of the human body and brain, and exploring the evolution of consciousness.
The programme features live performances by Stelarc, New Opera Hero, Musion Academy, Holotronica, Photophonics and Di Mainstone.
A programme of automata, drawing and arduino Workshops will be on the balcony – with Arts Republic, Jim Bond and Openlab.
