Kinetic Sculpture Is The Art Form You Didn’t Know You Were Obsessed With Until Now

May 11, 2016

Kinetic sculptors are, in many ways, performance artists of a different breed.

Instead of using their bodies to bring work to life, they create pieces that do the performing for them — sculptures that take on lives of their own. Over the years, the term “kinetic art” has evolved from something that represents the impression of movement in two-dimensional work to something that leaves impressions behind in favor of actual motion.

Creators like Anthony Howe, who is one of the most respected kinetic artists in the world, construct sculptures that move with a little help from human hands and natural elements.

The resulting works of art are as fascinating as they are hypnotic.
