Is Kinetic Art the next big thing in the production business?

Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 11.10.55 AMWalking around LDI this year I started to see a new trend emerge. I asked myself, is Kinetic Art the next possible wave of productions? Several of the booths this year featured both moving lights and elements to create a visual spectacle that drew lots of observers.

If you are not aware of Kinetic Art, it is Lumino kinetic art. Lumino kinetic art involves, as the name suggests, light and movement. Lumino kinetic art is now being widely used in stage productions.

In most cases, multiple smaller arrays of led lighting are strung across multiple DMX controlled “mini motors” that create a visual art flow. While some of these systems are still costly, I can definitely see a movement towards lowering the cost and an increase in strong visual presentations in the world of production.   

Here’s just an example of one I found amazingly cool. Kinetic Art at LDI by Media Front CLICK HERE to watch.
