We love the guys at the Kinetica Museum, and all the great, ground breaking work they do for Kinetic Art - Based in London, they have a new exhibition which you really should check out............its on for a month-
16 October to 14 November 11-6pm
at Hotel Elephant, 77 - 85 Newington Causeway, London  (Near Elephant + Castle)
The exhibition takes place in Reuben Powell’s temporarily reclaimed 13000sq ft warehouse and is really, really good.
The exhibition features new works from artists:
Ivan creates complex and interactive Kinetic sculptures, which spiral towards a shifting vanishing point. He has an obsessive interest in the search for patterns in motion, and the ability to express mathematical paradigms in visual terms.
 Deep stuff, who doesn't love a visual mathematical paradigm?
You really have to see them to marvel at the level of skill - with which they are conceptualised and constructed.
A continuous visual snapshot of a piece of code. Dramatic and sublime.


I have personally been a long term fan of Reuben's intricate, mathematical and skilled artworks.
For this exhibition he has created a new body of reconstructivist images on tin-plate steel and large graphite drawings on paper.
He is concerned with the relationship between the individual and the environment.
His works are both a scientific experiment and a profound comment on a vanishing landscape.Reuben is artist in residence at the Elephant and Castle where he has been working and exhibiting from his studio/gallery over the past year recording the regeneration of the area, of this maligned part of London with a fresh and compelling perspective. The regeneration of the Elephant and Castle is the largest scheme of its kind in Europe and represents a significant change in the urban landscape of London.
Reuben also provides eye opening workshops with local school children from his warehouse studio.

The juxtaposition of the two artists' work and the gritty decaying English space, make it a ravishing and mind-bending MUST SEE.
