Who We Are

Kinetica Museum was co-founded by Dianne Harris and Tony Langford in 2004. Back then we found that kinetic or new media artworks made up less then 5% of the mainstream public art collections in the UK. The success of the former museum at Spitalfields in 2006-7 showed the huge appeal for this type of art on a global scale, and our continuing work is at the forefront of the ongoing kinetic art "movement" focussing on universal exploration. Artists are looking across many disciplines and collaborating with scientists, cosmologists, technologists, engineers and architects to provide a greater understanding and universal knowledge into their work.

Dianne Harris (Artist, Art Director and Curator) has worked within the applied arts for 20 years and has exhibited widely both in the UK & internationally. She has curated Kinetica’s exhibitions and feature exhibitions since the Museum’s inception in 2006/07. The exhibitions have been noted worldwide & recognised for being ground-breaking, experimental and ahead of their time. Dianne takes great delight in finding works and curating concept exhibitions that affect us to our core and has had the pleasure of showcasing many important kinetic works from the recent past alongside many of the worlds great pioneering artists working today.

Tony Langford (Managing Director) has worked on the research and application of audiovisual and interactive media for more than 15 years.  He has coordinated the annual programme of talks and events at Kinetica Art Fair in London, themed around concepts such as the human body and brain, perception and consciousness, and has established networks and connections with artists, neuroscientists, academics and performers who are using some of the latest interactive, holographic and immersive technologies.
