Review The Kinetica Art Fair 2014 Put the Fun Back in Art... (by Holly Howe) - #kineticart

Review The Kinetica Art Fair 2014 Put the Fun Back in Art... (by Holly Howe) - #kineticart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
We went to the Kinetica art fair to learn about moving and experimental art. 


The Kinetica Art Fair returned to London for its sixth year but changed its dates and location to tie in with Frieze London. This year saw its base at the Truman Brewery, an edgier location in London’s East End, which also hosted the Moniker Art Fair, the Other Art Fair, and the Contra Art Fair.


But the Kinetica Art Fair is not your typical fair—this is all about interacting with the works, which basically means getting to play with art. It’s also a fair that is better seen in the flesh than viewed in photographs, but we wanted to give you a look at some of the incredible works that were on view at the fair this year. ...

CATEN - Kinetic sound installation by David Letellier

Created for the Saint Sauveur chapel in Caen, Caten is a levitating sculpture, determined by gravity and guiding the evolution of a sound composition.


300 fine wires suspended from two ropes, connected themselves at each end to a slowly rotating arm, form an evanescent surface which interacts with the architecture.


By a symbolic mirror effect, the curves of the wires, created by the gravitational force, reflect the shapes of the church arches. Caten opposes the ephemeral to the eternal, the movement to the static, and produce a tension between the lightness and the millenary stability of the space.


The sound composition is inspired by the medieval solmisation prayers, especially the first verse of "Ut Queant Laxis", also known as the "hymn to St John the Baptist", used in the eleventh century to determine the names of the notes of the scale used in latin countries.
At each turn, the engines emit one of the first 4 notes of the scale (Ut, Re, Mi, Fa), creating a sequence of intervals, constantly reconfigured. Low frequencies resonate in the space and emphazise the transcendental character of a place once dedicated to faith.
The name is derived from the term catenary, which describes the plane curve formed by a rope hanging between two points.

 

Caten was produced for the festival Interstice, with the support of the Station MIR.

M0za1que - Kinetic light art installation by LAb[au]

Created by LAb[au], Moza1que (French word for mosaic) is a permanent artwork for ‘La Maison Mécatronique’ in Annecy-Le-Vieux, France.  The main wall of the entrance hall 3.4m x 6m is divided in 26×15 squares, each motorised by a linear actuator with a range of 10cm. The individual control of the motion creates different three-dimensional reliefs of geometric patterns evolving following the logics of cellular automata.

Kinetica Artfair - February 28th – March 3rd 2013

Kinetica Artfair - February 28th – March 3rd 2013 | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The aim of Kinetica Art Fair is to present works that exemplify universal concepts, heighten consciousness and advance human potential; it is through the performative and immediate nature of the works and the viewers creative engagement with them that a strong attunement to the concepts are activated. Many of the works are intuitive in the ways that they reach out to the viewer or the viewer will activate the work into being, a kind of living art where the viewer and art are creating an inter-change, or physical dialogue.

 

The interconnection between art and science has been around for a long time, Kinetica is dedicated to the historical and contemporary importance of these themes and provides London with an international platform unlike anything realised before. Kinetica Art Fair brings together galleries, artist’s collectives, curatorial groups and organisations specialising in kinetic, electronic and new media art from around the world, collectively portraying an ‘Art of Universal knowledge’, where many disciplines are called upon in the creation of the work and its concepts.

▶ Reuben Margolin: On Kinetic Art @ PopTech 2009

First inspired by the mysterious and mathematical qualities of a caterpillars crawl, artist Reuben Margolin creates large-scale kinetic sculptures that use pulleys and motors to recreate the complex movements and structures we see in nature. Margolin takes to the PopTech stage to share some of his extraordinary mechanical installations.

Theo Jansen - Strandbeest compilation

Self-propelling beach animals like Animaris Percipiere have a stomach . This consists of recycled plastic bottles containing air that can be pumped up to a high pressure by the wind. This is done using a variety of bicycle pump, needless to say of plastic tubing. Several of these little pumps are driven by wings up at the front of the animal that flap in the breeze. It takes a few hours, but then the bottles are full. They contain a supply of potential wind. Take off the cap and the wind will emerge from the bottle at high speed. The trick is to get that untamed wind under control and use it to move the animal. For this, muscles are required. Beach animals have pushing muscles which get longer when told to do so. These consist of a tube containing another that is able to move in and out. There is a rubber ring on the end of the inner tube so that this acts as a piston. When the air runs from the bottles through a small pipe in the tube it pushes the piston outwards and the muscle lengthens. The beach animal's muscle can best be likened to a bone that gets longer. Muscles can open taps to activate other muscles that open other taps, and so on. This creates control centres that can be compared to brains.

Orbita - installation by Tommi Grönlund & Petteri Nisunen - 2006

"Orbita"-installation consists of a stainless steel ball 40 cm of diameter slowly moving around circular stainless steel tracks 8 m of diameter. In the centre point of the tracks there is a single light bulb, the only light in the space, which casts a shadow of the moving ball to the surrounding walls. The sound of the rolling ball is picked up with contact microphones attached to the tracks. Then it is amplified and played back real time through speakers in the corners of the exhibition space.

The constant movement of the ball is possible because of gravitational pull and minimal friction. There are three servo motors along the tracks on equal distance of each other pulling the tracks closer together just when the ball is passing by. This lifts the ball a little and it starts to run "downhill" where the tracks are wider from each other, gathering more speed. This extra speed is enough to keep the ball rolling until the next servo motor.

Laurent Bolognini (X360) at Louise Alexander Gallery Porto Cervo 2012

New cinetic installation by Laurent Bolognini in Porto Cervo. This prototype was exhibited and used for performance by French artist in Summer 2012.

 

Laurent Bolognini was born in Saint Germain en Laye (France) in 1959. After studies at the "Societé Française de Photographie," he launched in a career of light designer from 1990 onward. He conceived and realized his first « Galiléographe » in 1998. The device was meant to generate a luminous backdrop for Berlioz Benvenuto Cellini, a concept he created in partnership with Francoise Henry during their collaboration as a group "Les Alternateurs Volants" (1998-2006).

Kinetica Museum curate national and international touring exhibitions, and produce the annual Kinetica Art Fair.

Kinetica Museum focuses on showcasing work that makes contributions towards evolutionary processes and universal exploration, and has emerged from an urgent British cultural need to provide an international platform for contemporary artists working in the realm of interdisciplinary new media art. It also aims to recognise the strong historical lineage of kinetic art and the impact of significant works from our recent past.
