I am...
Kinetica aims to actively encourage the convergence of art and technology, providing an alternative platform to static traditional forms of art such as painting and sculpture.

The museum champions artistic innovation of all kinds and showcases work which explores the interwoven complexities of scientific development and the human condition. Our vision is to create both a historical and contemporary art collection of seminal and cutting-edge multi-disciplinary works that date back from the 1920s through to the present day, focusing on the pioneering and influential importance of such works.

Kinetica Museum successfully established itself as one of London's premier artistic centres and received international recognition for its dynamic series of exhibitions, workshops, performances and artist talks. This phase of the project, launched on October 6th, 2006, revolved around Kinetica's high-profile exhibition space in central London, where, over the course of nine months, some of the most important examples of kinetic, technological and electronic art, both past and present were showcased through seven major exhibitions.

Since the departure from the Museum site, Kinetica has exhibited reguraly in London and Internationally, and will launch the first Kinetica Art Fair at the P3 at the end of February 2009.
About my artwork
Artists for centuries have expressed through their work visions of the past, present and future, the ‘artist’ has often developed an invention, idea, or structure that has lead the way forward for mankind.

With the fast increasing advancement and development of a scientific and technological culture, it is only natural that many contemporary artists have crossed the plateau from ‘fine art disciplines’ into ‘multi-disciplinary new media’ with artworks that utilise and warp technology itself, to explore, nurture and comment on our evolutionary processes. Emerging from a cultural need to show-case and provide a platform for contemporary artists working in these new media, as well as to re-present significant pieces from our recent past, ‘Kinetica’ focuses on work that essentially makes suggestions and contributions towards human evolution including alternative insight and reaction to scientific and universal exploration.

Throughout the twentieth century western society and culture were dominated by the machine. The fascination artists held for the beauty and power of mechanical processes established an enduring dialogue between creativity and technology.
Many contemporary artists have now extended and enriched this dialogue between human and machine through the use of groundbreaking technological advancements of recent times which include; robotics, sensors, computing, engineering, lasers, and countless other tools and devices. This new ‘wave’ in reference to the metaphor of our ‘great’ machine ‘the Universe’, has inspired a new generation of artists to explore scientific discoveries and challenge technological life.
Through the experience of running ‘The Luminaries’ kinetic and interactive gallery 2003-04 www.theluminaries.com we have found there to be an increasing number of pioneering and up-coming artists working within these new realms. Kinetica aims to play a significant role in the formation of this reclaimed movement by showcasing many of these avant-garde artists to not just the regular ‘art-goer’ but to a new generation of viewers who will engage, participate and create with the art itself - a growing audience with a fascination for art that has a life of its own, one that is kinetic.

Kinetica's aim through the fair is to popularise artists and organisations working in these genres and to provide a new platform for the commercial enterprise of kinetic, electronic and new media art.

Alongside the fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances. These events will involve some of the world’s most eminent leaders in the fields of kinetic, electronic and new media art.
