"Wonder Festival 2018 Summer"

Thanks for coming to us!
It's been a hot day as usual!



Thanks for visiting "O.MORO-HEAD+K" booth!


exhibition "The JIDAI Era"

The innovative studio Art Dynamics 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.

"What will it be like? If the lizard's cut-off tail begins by its will to reproduce another body with mechanical parts."; with this image I've kept on making sculptures. Sometimes there's a question like this:"Do they move?" They seem to move when nobody is there...
Gradually the contents will increase. Thank you for visiting this site and come again!
