The more our lives become intertwined with technology, the more the Kinetica Art Fair becomes a relevant platform for ambitious tech-related type of art. Now on its fifth year, Kinetica Art Fair is bustling with energy and possibilities. The great thing about the Kinetic Art Fair is that it looks to the future and yes, it’s future is oh so bright. I predict that in a few years to come, it will become a much more important exhibition and would garner more funding from not just new media outfits but also by top art ponchos.
A convergence of kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multi-disciplinary new media art, Kinetica Art Fair brings artworks from more than 35 galleries and some of the artists featured are with international pedigree. It’s not surprising that this is not a curated art fair. Art is for all and so is technology although I am sure that if it is curated better, it can be a formidable force in the arts world. But for now, here in the Kinetica Art Fair, there is a sense of collaborative spirit all happening between artists, designers, architects and new media students so much so that it seems like they are breeding this into their own playground.
Interactivity is in the heart of the Kinetica Art Fair: from a typewriter that beats drum sounds into bottles to a large-scale sculptural zoetrope, there are unexpected things in this exhibition that can take your breath away.
