HALF MACHINE is interactive art installations, dance performance and concert events – complex collaborative art experiments involving the audience.
An international group of artists create large scale light- and water installations, aerial suspensions, pyrotechnics, high voltage labs and more from recycled materials and electronic wizardry. HALF MACHINE is inviting both spectators, artists and scientists into dialog and interaction including live musicians and fearless dancers in the air and on the ground. HALF MACHINE gave name to a series of events and installations, all leaving a strong imprint as compelling transformative experiences.
Many hundred artists from around the world take part in creating HALF MACHINE events and installations.
HALF MACHINE is inspired by the theme“meltage man and machine”.
“Objects and dancers are suspended in a giant mobile, robots, video art and live concerts in water and light – a crazy and surreal eco system in the midst of an electronic playground”
“All installations are interactive, the artists playing with discarded technology and recycled objects merging with the inventions of tomorrow”
“The art is cross connected in a mega grid, patterns and developments triggered by random human interaction. All artists are present throughout the event, and the art/technology and body experiments constantly evolving!”
HALF MACHINE events and art experiments are created based on the following guidelines :
- art is interactive
- art is created from recycled materials interacting with new technology
- art is investigating the intertwinement body and machine
- artists must be present at all times during events
- artistic process is exposed to encourage dialogue between artists and audience
