ADA is a self-forming artwork, visitors animated, an independent viral performer, a post-industrial „creature“, resembling a molecular hybrid, such as a one from nano biotechnology. 
Filled up with helium, floating freely in room, spiked with charcoals that leave marks on the walls, ceilings and floors. The globe put in action by visitors, fabricate in open source procedure a composition of lines and points, which remains incalculable in their intensity, expression. It is a movement exprienced visually, which like a computer make an unforeseeable output after entering a command. 
Not in vain « ADA» reminds of Ada Lovelace, who in 19th century together with Charles Babbage developed the very first prototype of a computer. Ada Lovelace intended to create a machine that would be able to create works of art, such as poetry, music, or pictures, like an artist does. 
And still, «ADA's» work is unmistakable potentially humane, because the only available decoding method for these signs and drawings , is the association which our brain corresponds at the most when it configures itself.  > more

Le Silence du mouvement: Between kinetic art and contemporary art, this collective exhibition presents the works of Damien Bénéteau, Laurent Debraux, Justin Fiske, Pascal Haudressy, Gladys Nistor, Catarina Rosa, Karina Smigla-Bobinski and Haruhiko Sunagawa. The exhibition offers a sensory experience and an immersion into a world where time and the sounds of the city remain suspended. The silence of the movement then appears.
