Motion is the change in space and time of an object.
- In visual art, motion is implied for 2-dimensional
work such as speed lines, motion bluring, or an object appearing to
move across the screen. In 3-dimensional art, the work can be still,
such as a vase or statue, or it can move—like a toy with a motor
or a car.
- In audible art, the motion is not from point A to
point B, but from one note to another note that may be higher or lower
in pitch. Motion is also the "quickness" or "slowness"
the work moves from one note to another.
- In written art, motion is implied and only exists
in the mind of the reader.
The reason we can see objects is because they have color, the subject of our next lesson.
