Kinetica Art Fair

February 7th 2010

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.

    The installations are not only amazing to look at, but you can also learn how it functions.
