Kinetic Form

Kinetic is a term used to describe a situation related to, or produced by, motion. Motion is the act or process of changing position or place over time. While motion involves time as a measurement of change, the definition of form itself does not involve time. As a result, “kinetic form” is not a contradiction but rather an extension to the notion of form as a motionless boundary.1 It is about the idea that perpetual succession is not only conceived directly through physical motion but also indirectly through formal expression.
