Kinetic art

Term referring to sculpture in which motion is a significant feature. Developed in response to technology, it was pioneered by Marcel DUCHAMP, Naum GABO, and Alexander CALDER. The art can be either mechanical (e.g., works by Jean Tinguely) or nonmechanical (e.g., sculpture by George Rickey). The machine-art movement of the 1980s and 90s has emphasized performances of autonomous or remote-controlled vehicles and machines.
