—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.
