Kinetic Art

Deriving from the Greek word “kinesis,” which means movement, kinetic art is a term applied to art that moves or appears to move. It is  art from any medium that contains movement perceivable by the viewer or which employs motion to achieve its intentions. While canvas paintings that extend the viewer's perspective of the picture plane and incorporate multidimensional movement are the earliest examples of kinetic art, it also includes cinematic motion pictures, solar powered installations, animated clockworks and three-dimensional art sculptures that integrate air, wind and water and make movement itself an integral part of their design and aesthetic.
