Makers of Imaginary Worlds explored found objects, reused old forgotten things - toys, kitchen utensils and clock parts to design Thingamabobas. The installation space is a place of wonder and draws on the absurdities of British artists’ Heath Robinson and Rowland Emett’s contraptions, Calder’s Circus (1930’s), automatas, object theatre, puppetry and circus acts. These artificial life forms have a whimsical personality with embedded artificial intelligence (AI) and capabilities for touchless interaction that responds to the audience's movements. The sculptures aesthetics and movements will reference traditional circus acts; clowns, acrobats, trapeze acts, tightrope walkers, jugglers, contortionists, trampolinists and unicyclists.
