Granny’s precarious vase
Middlesex University – An Accident Waiting to Happen
An Accident Waiting to Happen sums up the best bits of Kinetica. Funny, interactive and grabbing your attention before anything else does. From a distance it’s just a lone antique vase on a table. Come closer and it springs into life, cleverly recognising your position and darting away to the other end of the table. Cheeky little sod. It’s then you notice the circle of broken crockery around the table and culpability kicks in as the vase threatens to topple over. I’m told this piece is about accidents lurking around every corner and learning from your mistakes. Or maybe you should just steer clear of anything remotely ordinary looking here, because nothing is what it seems.
