KINETIC contemplated the multitude of meaning we ascribe to the vast & ubiquitous concept of movement. Whether an artist’s expressive composition or a scientist’s subject of examination, our world is defined by kinetics — the way our bodies, minds, & even the celestial body on which we reside exist in a perpetual state of motion.
KINETIC hosted a variety of performances, lectures, & education that explored the concept of motion through the arts, sciences, & beyond.
The KINETIC exhibition introduced audiences to legendary and contemporary artists pushing the boundaries of kinetic art. Visitors witnessed the scale and scope of John Buck’s illustrious career and delved into the intricacies of his large-scale, hand-carved sculptures in motion. They moved through Blumen Lumen’s garden of interactive flowers and learned about the scientific study of movement with the UNO Department of Biomechanics’ interactive display.
