ADA - an analog interactive installation / kinetic sculpture
at FILE Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

April 10 to May 13, 2012
Oi Futuro, Rua Dois de Dezembro, 63, Flamengo


ADA - an analog interactive kinetic sculpture by Karina Smigla-Bobinski, similiar to Tinguely's «Méta-Matics», acts itself. At Tinguely's it is sufficient to be an unwearily struggling mechanical being. He took it wryly: the machine produces nothing but its industrial self-destruction. Whereas «ADA» is a post-industrial "creature", visitor animated, creatively acting artist-sculpture, self-forming artwork, resembling a molecular hybrid, such as a one from nano biotechnology. It developes the same rotating silicon-carbon-hybrids, midget tools, miniature machines able to generate simple structures. > more
