KINETIC SCULPTURES GENERATING MOIRE PATTERNS

You have seen beautiful and elegant paintings on walls; lots of them. You’ve also seen paper sculptures (or wood or even fruit) made by master artisans. But have you seen moving artworks or sculptures?

They are called Kinetic Sculptures, and they are what you expect them to be: they are artworks and sculptures that actually move. These moving sculptures aren’t that common, especially since it takes a lot of time to plan and build them. But one thing is for sure, they create hypnotic, spell-binding illusions that will make it very, very hard for you to look away.

Moiré effect is a visual perception that occurs when viewing a set of lines or dots that is superimposed on another set of lines or dots, where the sets differ in relative size, angle, or spacing.  

 Moirés are an interesting subject to study and play with. Moving one pattern over another can generate fascinating visual effects.
