The History and Evolution of Kinetic Art

Guang-Dah Chen, Chih-Wei Lin, and Hsi-Wen Fan
Abstract—Kinetic Art is a model of dynamic perceivable expression. As the continuous advance and improvement of science and technology, Kinetic Art thus combined with the technology of each year and displayed different appearances that it has been deeply influenced by technology and its development. This research would investigate the history of Kinetic Art via reviewing literature. And discuss the expression appearance in each stage and the influence on current Kinetic Art. Finally, the following viewpoints are proposed. 1. The evolution of Kinetic Art are gradually turned from living entertainment to art fields, and has a tight connection with technology. 2. Bauhaus established the position of Kinetic Art in the education of plastic design, and Kinetic Art is the indispensable manifestation pattern in the education of design. 3. Technology exists inside the creative ideas of Kinetic Art and that will drive the development of new fields of vision. 4. Kinetic Art will be conducted by high-tech and sustainably precede development of dynamic optical illusion effect and combine interaction and participation.
