Visual Movement is the principle of art that is used to create the look and feeling of action and guide the viewers eyes throughout the work of art How Artists Use Rhythm to Create Movement Bridget Riley, Blaze 3

  16. A group of artists tried to do more than control the way viewers looked at art. These artists were called Futurists. Futurists used rhythm to capture the idea of movement itself. They used the word dynamism to refer to the forces of movement. They believed that nothing was solid or stable. They showed forms changing into energy by slanting and overlapping surfaces. Futurism

  18. Alexander Calder was a mechanical engineer. Calder created his art by repeating abstract shapes and putting them in real motion using air currents and gravity. Calder's art pieces were called kinetic sculptures. Kinetic sculptures actually move in space. Calder's sculptures were given the name mobiles. Moving sculptures have been called mobiles ever since.
