"Created by Hyun Ju Song and Mi Lyoung Bae, The Moment is an exploration of language, how the meaning is formed from words. Hyun Ju Song describes a situation when people face an absurd situation in Korea, they say 'It makes no word.' This project is about the absurd moment and creates no word out of words."

"The Kinetica feature exhibition and events programme is themed on 'Illusion and Reality' and the thin veil that divides what is real and perceived. The exhibition will focus on perceptions of reality, with works by 19 international artists exploring the many dimensions of illusion. The exhibition aims to challenge ideas on what is real, perceived or imagined, and focuses on transformation, metamorphism, visual paradox, vibration, nature, the subliminal and the subconscious.
The exhibition includes a huge interactive light sculpture from Dutch artist Titia Ex, an exoskeleton hybrid of man–animal–machine by Christiann Zwanniken and a giant three dimensional zoetrope by Greg Barsamian.
The boundaries between reality and illusion will be explored in a series of live performances using the Musion holographic projection system, and features an international line–up including the award–winning audiovisual collective Origamibiro ; a fusion of 3d imaging and quantum mechanics in danceroom Spectroscopy ; a hypnotic audiovisual experience from Simulacrum ; and multi–sensory Polish collective INIRE. The Musion Academy will present a further series of captivating performances including Analema Group, AV3, IEOIE and Paul Prudence.
Key figures and eminent pioneers in the fields of new media art and neurosciences have been invited to participate in a daily programme of Talks, which also features presentations by experimental artists exhibiting at the Fair."

"The work of the Australian–born artist Simon Biggs marries old with new, bringing a sophisticated technological gloss to themes and motifs drawn from classical art and mythology.
In 'Halo', Biggs bought his trademark digital tableaux to atmospheric and historic architectural spaces. An interactive installation, 'Halo' drew upon a frame of reference that extended from Baroque and Renaissance painting to the visionary writings of William Blake. Produced in collaboration with composer Stuart Jones and choreographer Sarah Rubidge, 'Halo' was staged at the gallery of Harewood House near Leeds and then expanded to more spectacular proportions inside the converted church of Fabrica in Brighton.
'Halo' was curated and produced by Film and Video Umbrella. Supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of England. Exhibition equipment sponsored by Saville Audio Visual."
