Live Project No1

Brief: To create an poster to advertise Kinetica Art Fair 2012


This is a piece of work exhibited at the 2011 art fair. This is where it all began. I was intrigued by the fact that sound (movement) can create image. I wanted my poster to suggest movement. A piece of art about moving art (to me) can't be static. Good communication should explain itself. I planned to re create the art at the exhibition at home and create my own image.

These are the images this process created
Which I then turned into posters!

Although the process I used to create the image used movement, my end result still seemed very static.
 I then returned to using the same process to redesign the poster.

These are some photographs to show my process. Whilst conducting research on past Kinetica exhibitions I found the photo of the mechanical drawing machine (below) This gave me the idea to include the drawing implements I used to create my image.

Kinetica Art Fair 2011

Kinetic Art: Art that contains moving parts or depends on motion for its effect

Location: P3 (Ambika), Marylebone Road, London

When visiting this exhibition, I was unsure what I would find. What I found was art/sculptures/installations that were intruiging and really interesting. The atmosphere in the warehouse was calm yet noisy. Visitors were drawn toward bright lights and erratic robotic movements. Overall I really enjoyed this exhibition, it opened my eyes toward a type of art that encouraged interaction in which in most cases helped create/form the piece. I will definitely be going again in 2012! Here are pictures of some of the work from the exhibition..
