Abstract: Kinetica Art Fair is an annual event produced by Kinetica Museum in London, initiated in 2009 by Dianne Harris and Tony Langford, the Museum’s founders. The event is open to galleries, curators, and artists from around the world who “focus on universal concepts and evolutionary processes though the convergence of kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multidisciplinary new media art, science, and technology,” according to the press release. Because it is structured like an art fair, there is a wild and unpredictable mix of elements in each showcase, combining art works that appear curated with poster-like stands that exhibit the latest gadgets brought there by inventors themselves who can rent exhibition space to promote their inventions. There is also a performance space that hosts a range of digital, interactive shows and graphic projections; a key feature here is the 3-D stage of Musion Academy, which offers its advanced projection system to other artists as well as displaying its own 3-D animation research.
