Neil Mendoza is an artist from the UK who uses digital and mechanical technology to bring objects and space to life. Mendoza questions the role of gadgets in our lives. These gadgets are a form of escapism, used to avoid thinking and interacting by staring into the information space. For once, the gadgets are staring back at us waiting to be stimulated. One such example of this is illustrated within Mendoza’s robotic mobile in which the hanging elements are screens. Each of the screens shows parts of a face. As people walk around the mobile, the slightly crazed facial features follow them. The positions of the screens change in unison with the contents of the displays. His work has been shown at the Science Museum, The V&A, Watermans, PICNIC Festival, The AND Festival, BBC Big Screens and The Museum of London, among others.
