Carnivorous lampshades, pole dancing robots, man-animal-machine hybrids, mechanical writing machines, subliminal and sensitive installations, mesmerising light sculptures and cybernetics are just some of the incredible exhibits at Kinetica Art Fair, the UK's first art fair dedicated to kinetic, robotic, sound, light and time-based art, that opens in London on Friday 27 February with a dance-light spectacular.
Kinetica Art Fair, developed by Kinetica Museum in partnership with P3 with the support of the Contemporary Art Society, features well known artists from across the world including Daniel Chadwick, Sam Buxton, Jason Bruges, Martin Richman and Tim Lewis.
More than 25 galleries and organisations specialising in kinetic, electronic and new media art are taking part and over 150 artists are exhibiting. The Fair will be like no other with 'living' artwork moving, speaking and performing. The Fair provides unparalleled opportunities for the public and collectors alike to view and buy work from this thriving international movement, and to participate in talks, workshops and performances.
