Kinetic Art Selection Committee

Art that ranges from optical illusions to mechanical movement has been defined as Kinetic art. In its simplest form, Kinetic art can be found in and around most homes. Wind chimes outside a kitchen window or a musical mobile for a baby’s crib are both examples of Kinetic art. However, most pieces are interactive sculptured works, made up of parts designed to be set in motion by an internal mechanism or an external stimulus, such as a Motor, Water, Wind or even a button pushed by the viewer. In contrast to fine art exhibits which are set up in galleries and studios for patrons to come and admire, Kinetic art is an interactive form of art that leads its viewers to wonder how it is made and what it can do. Some art installations are set up so that observer or visitor can walk in, on, or around them. Typically computers and sensors will respond to motion, heat, meteorological changes or other input.
Because it is constantly evolving, Kinetic Art embraces new ways to improve technology needed for everyday life. The 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium will feature an engaging Kinetic Art exhibit outdoor on City streets and indoor in the exhibit tent and City Library program room.
