Kinetica Art Fair

I popped over to the Kinetica Art Fair yesterday, armed with my E-P1 and crazy little CCTV lens. I figured the nature of the exhibition – motion-based installations mostly utilising light as a medium – would be a nice match for this cheap but fast little lens.

My favourite exhibit were these holographic light sculptures by Rosaline de Thelin. They are made with fibre-optic cables and apparently inspired by ‘astronomy, scientific theories and quantum physics’.

I love these abstract bokeh photos; the unusual spiral characteristics of the lens really made some interesting results.

This was a cool little kinetic sculpture of a broken-up pair of glasses with motion driven by cogs; every so often if your point of view was right, you’d see the glasses reform into a what appeared to be a whole.

An installation of hundreds of LED lights which pulsed according to levels of sound in the room. Video of it in action here.

An interesting setup where a sensor traced the outline of a sculpture of a head and drew it onto paper on the floor.

This sweet installation entitled Flutter, by Cinimod Studio, shows the motion trail of a butterfly’s wings on several ‘video fins’.

Today is the last day of the exhibition, so get over there if you want to see it! Lots more photos on my Flickr.
