The edgy new media art of Laramascoto

Lady Cyborg- the maker angel

In an art world moving toward awareness of the power of kinetic, robotic, sound, light and time-based new media, Laramascoto certainly has a place. You likely haven’t heard much about them yet, unless you’re in Spain.  But their creative approach to experimental animation and audiovisual installation is cutting edge.  (Above and below: from Lady Cyborg – mural and animation on mp4)

laramascoto-wallThe Laramascoto Colectivo is the Spanish team of Beatriz Coto and Santiago Lara, clearly emerging talents although there is not much on them yet outside Europe. (They have a WordPress blog, in Spanish, here.) Laramascoto is showing at ARCO Madrid 2014, the international contemporary art fair running through Feb 23rd.
