Our theme for the 2005 exhibition is Kinetic Art - work that utilises motion and energy. The Gallery will feature a group show titled "Ohm Sweet Ohm" - a playful exploration of the artistic possibilities of kinetic energy created by a loose collective of artists drawn together by their common interest in all things electrical. This diverse group met through a short-course electronic workshop conducted by sculptor Alan Giddy (at COFA).
The diversity of the aesthetic and conceptual interest of the participating artists and the resulting artworks created by them, provide a glimpse into the range of creative potential in working with energy.
Works in the exhibition will incorporate recycled materials, domestic objects and mechanical devices given new life and meaning through the addition of electronically operated functions, as well as installations that employ the use of light, sound and digital/projected imagery.
