Kinetic Sculpture and Art
Description:
Kinetic Sculpture and Art is sculpture that has parts that move with respect to other parts; it depends on motion for its effects. Drawing engineering and art together, they give a glimpse at what great beauty can be created by the artist. Please click on "show additional information" below to see requirements for posting in this category.
Expanded Description:

Kinetic Sculpture and Art is a sculpture that incorporates the mechanical or random movement of one or more of its parts. Types of kinetic art includes mobiles, optical sculptures and other art that moves. These may be fixed pieces or pieces that move in a designated display area.

Pieces may be outdoors or indoors and must move by either wind, solar, water, electrical, motor or mechanical effort by the observer. Actual movement is a critical part of Kinetic Sculpture and Art design. Since sound is created by movement, a piece that creates sound, if it does not fit in another category such as Wind Harps, is also welcome here. Art installations based on light (other than neon which has its own category) than creates the illusion of movement by turning on and off in an artistic fashion are also welcome here.

The kinetic sculptures must NOT be mass produced consumer models such as found at Costco, Wal-Mart or other garden or home decoration stores.

Examples of Kinetic Sculpture and Art include:

- WM7VE7 Pilot and Navigator - Denver, CO
- WM5N4B Windmark - Colorado Springs, CO
- WM86GE Diaphonous Yo Tien - Loveland, CO
- WM4AE6 "Untitled" - Washington, D.C.
- Theo Jansen, Kinetic Sculptor

Because movement is a a primary component of kinetic sculpture, a video would be great! If you are able to shoot video or know of an existing video, a link would be fabulous. This is NOT a requirement; just an option.

Exclusions: This category is not for kinetic sculpture races, ‘art cars’, ModulArt, rolling balls sculptures (already a category), wind harps (a separate category), bells (a separate category), artistic neon (which has its own category) or store-bought whirligigs, wind chimes and similar consumer mass-market items.

A sculpture in an airport (or any other area with both open and restricted areas) that is within the secure area would not fit this category as only people with tickets would be able to view the sculpture.

Instructions for Posting a Kinetic Sculpture and Art Waymark:

Instructions for posting to Kinetic Sculpture and Art:

1. The piece must use kinetic motion as a central part of the artist’s intention.

2. Must provide accurate coordinates using Waymarkings’ default of lat/long in decimal minute per the WGS84 datum (most GPSr's default datum).

3. Minimum of two photos that you have personally taken that either show the piece in motion OR demonstrate different viewing angles that a viewer might see if the piece were moving. (Waymarkers should not be penalized because it was not a windy day.) You are strongly encouraged upload as many photographs to really ‘show off’ the piece. If a plaque is available with the title, artist, date, etc., include this information. Please do not include your GPSr. Do not include yourself in the default photo. An appropriate time to include people is to show scale of the piece or mechanical operation to make the piece ‘move’.

4. Naming requirement: Title of Piece (or unknown if not known) - City, State/Province/Country (whichever is appropriate). Example: “Diaphonous Yo Tien - Loveland, CO”

5. In the "Long Description" field, include a brief description of the piece. Try to find out a bit of information about the piece and artist. Please cite your sources. The bulk of the text in the long description must be left black. If the post is not in English, it would be very nice to have an English translation - though this is not required.

6. Material/media used to construct the piece.
