If you remember back to your middle school physics class, kinetic energy is energy in motion. It’s a fascinating scientific principle that many people forget has a significant place in public art. These kinetic art sculptures evoke strong emotional responses due to their fluidity and strong design features. Additionally, businesses and government entities benefit from public enthusiasm – leading to higher tourist and consumer activity.
EG Structural has a deep passion for creating public art pieces that recognize your unique identity. Kinetic art installations are just one specialty that we are capable of providing to ensure your brand is represented artistically and functionally. Our article below details what goes into a beautiful kinetic art sculpture and its impact on public perception.
The Popularity of Kinetic Art Sculptures?
In the 20th century, the use of movement in art became a popular aspect of many prominent sculpture pieces. This art form is called kineticism and its popularity has not slowed down. Many private art commission sculptures adopt some form of kineticism due to their simple, but fluid design. Artists like Naum Gabo, Marcel Duchamp, László Moholy-Nagy, and Alexander Calder were prominent figures in the movement and inspired artists and sculpture lovers from around the world.
What Goes into Kinetic Art Projects?
The magic behind kinetic art sculptures is not easy to come by. It takes a lot of energy and resources to ensure everything is in working order. Furthermore, just like with any large-scale art project, it takes a lot of brainstorming, designing, engineering, and custom fabrication knowledge to bring art to life.
Building kinetic art sculptures is equally an art project as it is a scientific experiment. It involves designing pieces that when put together will move in unison. Depending on the artist’s design, it will incorporate different parts to power movement, like wind and motors.
To design a kinetic sculpture, artists will painstakingly create each piece on paper or digitally. Then with the power of custom fabrication, these pieces will become reality and fit together to form the intricate design. When enlisting an artist for a private commission art project, businesses and municipalities should hire an artist or company that will:
- Conceptualize and design a sculpture based on your feedback
- Coordinate production, quality, and risk minimization throughout the installation
- Coordinate with custom fabrication, transportation, and construction professionals
- Make recommendations on proper sculpture maintenance
Kinetic Art Sculpture’s Impact on The Community
Public art adds enormous value to our communities by providing cultural, aesthetic, and economic vitality. Structures such as kinetic art have become an accepted aspect of urban design because of its contribution to the area’s identity. Additionally, it fosters a sense of pride and inspiration for residents and tourists alike. Simply put, communities without public art are a little less vibrant and people are less likely to feel pride in their city or business.
