From Mobiles to Machines, movement in art can be as subtle as breath on a feather or as powerful as an explosion. This course will help you to make your art move.
10.00-12.00 MAC Classroom
Introduction to the subject, exploring classic methods that artists (2D & 3D) have used to introduce movement into their work, from Water Grotto’s to Kinetic art.
The morning then looks at simple mechanics using natural power sources (wind, water, sand and hand) and low voltage electrics.
12.00-1.00 Packed lunch and transfer to Automata Studio on the Altyre Estate near Forres (transport provided if needed)
1.00-2.30 A tour of the cavernous automata workshop with demonstrations of mechanical movement from eating and dancing to waterfalls and lightning.
2.30-5.00 Hands on. Learn the basics to enable you to get your work moving and build a simple model showing a classic principle of movement.
We look forward to hearing your ideas and inspiring the use of movement in your work. The course includes a follow up consultation for each participant to help bring your work to life. Aimed at what type of student: All levels of ability (adults)
