Went to Kinetica at the weekend. I've been a few times now. I should enjoy it more. There are always some good things - normally the things that are resolutely mechanical and/or funny.
But I always get this sense of aesthetic dead end. I don't know much about the New Aesethic but I know it ain't at Kinetica.
Maybe it's the gloom.
I'm suspect I'm slightly suspicious of art that requires a dark room before you even start.People try and do wit or humour but it doesn't seem to work, it's always too heavy, leaden. Maybe whimsy plus darkness = goth.
