Debby Coles-Dobay, Public Arts Manager for the City of Boynton Beach, said, “Kinetic artworks are powered by solar, water, wind, gravity and human interaction.  Each installation has an augmented reality component to deepen the experience and, in some cases, allow visitors to enter and shape the artwork.  This is art in four dimensions.”  

 

 

The outdoor installations are accessed via an easy-to-walk self-guided tour or scheduled group tours with trained docents.  In the augmented reality experience, objects appear before your eyes through an easy-to-use app. At each sculpture the kinetic artist will describe their work on your smartphone or tablet.  For app, maps and more visitIntlKineticArtEvent.org.

WHAT IS KINETIC ART?

 

 

Kinetic Art ranges from optical illusions to mechanical movement. Most kinetics are interactive, made up of parts designed to be set in motion by an internal mechanism or an external stimulus, such as a Solar, Water, Wind, Electricity or Viewer-Interactive. In contrast to fine art exhibits in galleries and studios, Kinetic Art is an interactive format that leads viewers to explore how it is made and how it moves. Some Kinetic Art installations are set up so that the observer can walk in, on, or become a part of, them. Kinetics communicates sensorial experiences, allows the artist to break barriers and often includes multiple disciplines. Because it is constantly evolving, Kinetic Art embraces new ways to use and even improve technology for everyday life.

 

 

2019 International Kinetic Art Exhibition and Symposium:

An international collaboration between

Anthony Castronovo and Eleonora Nicoletti

 

 

The Solar Shimmer project consists of a long screen or textile-like installation composed of recycled CDs and solar lanterns.  A unique design will be created that will be site – specific for Boynton Beach. The size of the proposed project is 6’ x 36’ and is composed of three panels. Students will participate by designing their own solar lanterns made with small, recycled plastic bottles. They will also assist with the installation of Solar Shimmer in which their artworks will be hung on the fence to create the pattern in the project.

Students will be engaged throughout the project and will be able to take their lanterns home at the end of the installation. The artists will provide materials in the form of PDFs and videos to engage students in an inspiring discussion of contemporary solar art, unique architectural applications of photovoltaics, and elements of sustainability such as material waste and reuse.

PETER G. PEREIRA is a versatile artist in Painting, Illustration Performance and Installation Art. After 20+ years in New York, Peter has recently relocated to Delray Beach. He studied at the University of Omaha and Art Studies in Europe and Africa in the 1980’s and 90’s. On his return he was accepted into several prestigious galleries for painting including Timothy Roberts Gallery and Gallerie D’Art Contemporain (to which his abstract work has returned). He has since continued to create across disciplines and notably evolved the Trees of Life Sculpture Multimedia Installation over the past 10 years in New York and toured internationally in recent years (with Figment Arts) bringing this unique Installation Series as far as Geelong, Australia. Based on paintings and drawings from his time in Africa and later Montreal, Peter created the Paradox Box Series of Wrap Sculpture and Painting Performance Series. He also composed an original album for the show, which later was performed off-Broadway. As an Illustrator, his Comic Book Narrative work appears in Strauss News.
