Kinetic Art

  Kinetic art (from Greek for ‘concerned with the relationship between moving bodies’) consists either of three-dimensional mobiles and constructions which operate in a predetermined or random way, driven by a motor or by natural energy such as wind, or Op Art paintings which use optical illusion to cause the picture surface to appear to move before the eye. Examples of the former are the mobiles of Alexander Calder and the powered constructions of Yves Tinguely, while Victor Vassarély\'s geometric abstractions exemplify the latter. Other artists who have experimented with kinetic art include Marcel Duchamp and Pol Bury. MG PD
