The group takes its name from the independent power system Loco (locative) Moto (portable and moves) Art, that is, art that utilizes the ubiquity of digital technology. LMAC artists create sound, contemplative and interactive installations, as well as computer generative works. Through this explorative and emerging practice of digital eco-art, they offer socially interactive outdoor events and workshops with and for the community. Cross-cultural and inter-generational public participation is encouraged through our comprehensive outreach strategies to bring people of all ages and cultures together to experience participatory and technologically mediated artworks outdoors.
The LocoMotoArt Collective (LMAC) formed in 2012 and is comprised of members of IMAPON.
