Tenderpixel is an idea-driven cutting-edge contemporary art gallery, showcasing emerging artists. The central London gallery provides artists with a platform for presenting new work in the form of monthly exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and performances.

At Kinetica, Tenderpixel will be featuring GPS drawings from Jeremy Wood, and cellular automata paintings by Etan Ilfeld and Eric Ayotte.

Wood is a multidiscipline artist and mapmaker whose diverse work presents people and places in a playground of space and time. He started in 2001 to explore digital mark making on water, over land, and in the air. He makes maps of his movements to create a personal cartography by recording all his daily journeys with GPS. His work binds the arts and sciences by using the languages of drawing and sculpture to express notions of space and time.

Eric Ayotte and Etan Ilfeld's first collaboration, Breaking Point, explores the meta and microcosmic synthesis of computer-creativity, mathematics, optics, art history and painting. Their creative process incorporates Stephen Wolfram's New Kind of Science methodology by testing aesthetic-algorithms, and processing and juxtaposing media images onto 2-D Cellular Automata in Mathematica. Their paintings utilize computer creativity in a unique manner. Iran/Urumqi is a composition that was computer-generated from the combinations of images from protests in Urumqi, and Iran following the disputed elections in June, 2009. {{ L'Arroseur, 0 }, { 0, ArrosēŸ½} depicts a protest in which the riot police is using a hose to control the crowd, and is inspired by the element of water as emphasized in the blue/green colour scheme and nested pattern, which gives the effect of ripples in a pond. Manile/Rule 524 is based on a protest in Manila, and uses the 1-color 2-dimensional Cellular Automaton rule 524, which Ilfeld and Ayotte adore.
