What better way to spend a cold, early March weekend than to be enclosed in the spacious halls of Westminster University surrounded by truly magical art? The event was the Kinetica Art Fair, returning for the fifth time to London’s Marylebone, promising each time to leave its spectators in awe and disbelieve.
As you enter through the doors, you are greeted with lights, 3D screens and cleverly crafted moving objects. The fair, at its principle core, encourages interaction; maybe you would like to swing in the sand with your companion to form interesting circular shapes in the ground, or perhaps you’d prefer to spray paint at a target while riding a large mechanical horse – the choices are plenty.
Our most favourite piece was a studded Perspex box with heightened perspective and a pyramid in its centre. As you stared at the piece your own reflection formed a third eye, much like the image on the back of a single dollar bill.
The fair closed on the 3rd of March, but be sure to place it firmly in your calendar for next year. If this year was an indication, the next will be sure to set Marylebone aflame with excitement. Visit the website below for more details.
