Artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski exhibits ADA Kinetic Sculpture at The Lowry


The Lowry, currently has an exhibition about creating art through common and banal objects.  Berlin-based Polish artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski has an installation titled, ADA, which is a giant interactive ball that has charcoal sticking out around its surface for visitors to draw around the room with it.


The project was inspired by Ada Lovelace who is known to have invented the computer as an automatic machine.  In the same spirit, ADA becomes a simple but conceptually interesting and FUN automatic drawing machine:
