We also went to Kinetica Artfair, where highlights included a wearable boar skull and surgical steel kinetic sculpture, lego autonomous instruments, a wired-up typewriter piano room, an angel only visible in the periphery of vision, a mahogany death star, a wall of eyeballs, lightning dresses, suspended magnetic clocks and clouds, a bicycle horse kinetic paint machine and a driftwood wind-up bird. Photos to follow (which won't do it justice). Tim bought a synthesiser kit and I was only saved from buying a a pair of fully programmable LED message glasses by the fact that they only had the display pair left (and they didn't fit me).
There was a certain amount of crossover(?) between the two, although one was brushed up, canon and posh and the other very much the anarchic madhouse art fair wrap party, full of people apologising for things being broken or trying to make one last sale. Something of the same attempt to engage/break/flood/fool senses. My eyes and brain feel quite stretched, and I still can't figure out how some of the things I saw today worked.
