Interactive installations - works where the art emerges in the interaction with the participant.

Berlin-based polish artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski has conceived 'ADA', a giant interactive analogue installation. The sculpture manifests 
itself as a large, clear helium-filled membrane studded with charcoal spikes, roaming freely within a white room. Users are encouraged 
to engage with the object by pushing and spinning it as it floats within the space, where the walls then slowly accumulate marks and flecks. 
The balloon is about three feet in diameter with 300 charcoal sticks attached to its surface via a technique the artist generated especially 
for the work, each about 10 inches apart. The premise of the artwork references the 19th century mathematician, Ada Lovelace.

Change in Direction

The content of this blog is changing.  My growing interest in curatorial practice has eclipsed my interest in contemporary photography. As my knowledge and interest evolves,  I plan to include more material and information on curating contemporary art in the UK, both on this site and partner site:  Curating the Contemporary
