ADA - analog interactive installation / kinetic sculpture / post-digital drawing machine
Named after 19th century English mathematician, Ada Lovelace, ADA is a self-forming artwork and post-industrial “creature”, resembling a molecular hybrid from nano biotechnology. Filled up with helium and spiked with charcoals, the membrane-like globe floats freely in each room it is located and leave marks on the walls, ceilings and floors. It is meant to be a movement to experience visually, like a computer that generates unforeseeable output after receiving a command. > more

Grande Halle de La Villette
The Grande Halle is an exceptional architectural structure that is part of La Villette’s history. Baron Haussmann asked architect Jules de Mérindol to design the structure in 1865, in order to house France’s largest cattle market. Given its location next to the slaughterhouses to the north of La Villette, over 4,600 cattle changed hands here. When La Villette was made into an urban park in 1974, the hall’s exceptional glass and iron architecture was preserved and the building became a renowned exhibition and cultural centre. The former cattle market was renovated in 2005, and is today a heritage site that reflects La Villette’s cultural and social diversity. > more
