Kinetic Art

Starting with the work of the Futurists, the inclusion of motion became a central theme to art, in particular sculpture, of the 20th century. Kinetic art is really a generic term for art that addresses the presence, whether apparent or real, of moving parts. Naum Gabo and Marcel Duchamp were among the first to incorporate moving parts in their work in 1920. Just a few years later, László Moholy-Nagy, a Hungarian associated with Constructivism, made machines of light and motion from metal and plastic. The undisputed leader of early Kinetic art is Alexander Calder. His delicately calibrated mobiles included the element of chance, as the works are not motorized, but instead propelled by the motion of the viewer and the currents in the room. In the 1950s Kinetic art was recognized and popularized by critics. The landscape of Kinetic art is ever-evolving, as technological developments provide artists with new ways to incorporate movement into their work.

I love these pencils, They are perfect for drawing and crosswords. I won't use anything else, and everyone keeps taking my pencils.

i used to paint on matted finished regular teacups. It is a lovely bright color finish. It can be scratched off, though. I did not fire them. I don't know if this is why.

Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
