Kinetics & Electronics
Kinetic art contains moving parts and depends on motion or sound for its effect. The moving parts can be powered by wind, by a motor, by clockwork or manually. The possibilities of integrating movement and sound with artwork are nearly endless—from wind-powered mobiles to motorized robots, art cars, flaming sculptures and more. You can learn to add movement, sound and interactivity to your artwork in classes that explore and explain the physics of movement, electronics and mechanical components, microcontrollers and even flame effects. Then take a project lab to practice and perfect your skills and make your wildest ideas a dynamic reality.
