Machinations: Kinetic Sculpture in the Age of Open-source is a glimpse into the ever-expanding spectrum of contemporary new media artists. The exhibit features works by a cast of tinkerers, hackers and inventors utilizing and re-contextualizing technologies to create works of art that are seemingly alive.
In the vein of the DIY and open source movements, Machinations elucidates the magic behind the machine. As educators and active participants of these communities, the artists of Machinations share the results of experimentations through online forums, workshops, customizable software and reproducible designs. This collection of works is an investigation of experimentalists who share and create with a communal spirit and change our perception of what is possible by using technology as an extension of the human hand.
Machinations: Kinetic Sculpture in the Age of Open-source is curated by Mark Porter.
