This Kinetic Course is designed for students to develop the skills, the prcesses and the creative ideas to create pieces of Kinetic Art. As this is a very broad area of creative work, the course will cover a broad sweep of skills and approaches. including working in metal, wood and plastics, use of motors, sensors, light and digital components. Materials explored will be both natural and man-made, and can include living material and the artists themselves. The inclusion of elements of motion and change (e.g. mechanical, light, sound, decay, time based media) creates ‘kinetic art work’. There are 3 exceptional tutors teaching on this course, all specialists in their field of kinetic art and this course is a fanstaic oppotunity to develop some skills needed for kinetic work, see the possibilities in this current and exciting field and develop your own personal piece of kinetic art.

Aphra Shemza is a London based artist who works with multi-media, light art, kinetic sculpture and interactive installation. Her work focuses on abstract, geometric and scientific research and often involves technology to translate these concepts to an interactive audience. Since gaining her BA from Middlesex in 2012, she has exhibited work with Kinetica Museum and the Lights of Soho gallery.

Tom Wilkinson’s work explores aspects of perceptual art. He uses wind power and electric motors to play with persistence of vision and kinetic energy and draws inspiration from physics and metaphysics. Tom Wilkinson is co founder of the public art group Arts Republic and is associate lecturer at UAL Wimbledon School of Art in Technical Arts and Special Effects.

Sean Malikides is a Melbourne based artist/engineer who’s work exists at the intersection of art, science and technology. His work focuses on the nature of human interaction, experimenting with electrically responsive devices, of light, motion and sound. After completing his robotics engineering degree in 2015, Sean has also contributed to a number of educational programs, running the ‘Spatial Lab’ interactive architecture program at Monash University (2016) and founding the robotics program at the John Monash Science School, Melbourne (2014 – 2015).
