Kinetic Art

Alexander Calder, Hanging Spider, 19.40. Painted sheet metal and wire. Private collection

A kind of moving art. Closely related to Op Art in its concern with the perception of motion by visual stimulus, it was a logical step to present objects that actually moved. Characteristic of the work of Alexander Calder and the Constructivists. (Gardner)
