exhibition "The JIDAI Era"




The innovative studio Art Dynamics and the art agency OTTEPEL together with the "MARS" Center of Contemporary Art present an exhibition of unseen mechanical creatures by the renown techno-art of Shovel Head.

JIDAI (from the Japanese "era","epoch") is a mysterious era of a form of life, which is not yet familiar to us, in which various creatures live that excite imagination with their bizarre multi-component nature. Somewhere they are similar to biological forms, somewhere quite unique.

Multimedia character of the exhibition creates three-dimensional animation, surround sound and show-program from the robot R-One, which enhances the impressions of the works of techno-art and simulates the presence in another dimension.
We invite you to meet the unprecedented creatures and robot R-one, which take us to another dimension - in the era of mechanical creatures.
