Well, I have to write a bit about the kinetic art fair, though it was a long time ago!! I’ve got some interesting pictures about works, but I’m not sure about upload them in the net (…) and anyway, my computer is death (great! hahah). It was really great, the talks and the exhibition. About the lectures, in general I liked a lot, the close talking to the spectators, I mean they where explaining the projects, the process, the way they built them, the troubles…without “secrets”, I mean it was a very open talk explaining everything, which is not common. About robots and avatars, was veryyyy interesting, because I was reading about it and there was people working in different fields of it, so we could know the projects they are working with currently, the situation, about the future expectations…And the disscusion afterwards was also good, the questions and the answers (I mean, very appropiated, and critics) though there was a general vision very confident in the technologic future (avatars, etc.) and the other point of view centrated in the “romantic” thinking of if we are our true ourselves…I mean, it was a manicheistic discussion about the life on and off line. I don’t know until which point we were disscussing if “is good” or true or..about something that is happening from a long time already, and that is already part of a big portion of the people, and of the society (bussines, relationships, etc.) like if is something that maybe is or not correctly that happen.. (well, I think I’m losing the point hahaha) Anyway, the lecture about the immersive technologies, etc. was more about the projects of groups of people, etc. so it was more concrete so less open to disscus about the situation of the technology, etc. but it was very extended to different fields, we could see holograms, and other pieces, and knowing nowadays works and ways to do them.
The performances in the afternoon, were videojocking in direct, with Holograms, and very impressive!! Thugh I went before it finished because it was full of people, and I was beggining to feel very stressed and pissed off!! hehehe
About the exhibition there was lots of different kinds of works, from different decades. It was maaarvellous the use of different technologies, not only as means for the pieces, but part fundamental of the concept, and process.
Personally, I found lots of works close to the women representation, etc. buut I was confident about the catalog having all the works and names, and now I found after that I can search about some artist because I don’t know who made these works hahaha
I will write about some of them when my computer will be back (I hope…sniff sniff)
