Switch it on: Shift from sculpture to interactive installation, curated by Noelia Lecue, is an exhibition that features the work of three artists, Scott Ferguson, Nick Doyle and Juri Rhyu. These artists are brought together to explain the different possibilities of construction and interactive installation, each incorporating a mechanical point of view within their work.


As the title suggests, the shift from mechanical sculptures to interactive installations presents the idea that art must question the mechanical aspect on our way of thinking. Switch It On explores the challenge of conceiving the sound, light, and movement as an invitation for spectators to interact and perform. By experiencing the space that is intentionally modified to include the first person, whether the artist is present or not, the sensory experience provokes and motivates our brains to think further.
