In week 3′s lecture, we approach the concept of wonder from a different direction. We put forward the idea that motion is a central captivating force that provides fascination. As humans, our attraction to movement may be instinctual but our attitudes towards different types of motions suggest a more culturally nuanced way of making sense of movements through associated meanings.
This lecture looks at the history and context of capturing movement in art. We examine how movement is used in a range of object-based artworks from the modern period to contemporary times. We focus on the affects of movement and kinetics on audience experience.
