/// WHAT IS KINETIC ART

Kinetic art is an artistic current that proposes works containing moving parts.
Read more...
Movement can be produced by the wind, the sun, a motor or the spectator. Kinetic art encompasses a wide variety of overlapping techniques and styles. The expression Kinetic Art first appeared at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich in 1960.
However, we can see the first manifestations of kinetic art as early as the 1910s in the futurist movement and some works by Marcel Duchamp. Later, Alexander Calder invented the mobile, a sculpture made of wires and metal parts that are set in motion by the movement of the ambient air. The expression kinetic art was adopted around 1954 to designate works of art set in motion by the wind, spectators and/or a motorized mechanism.

Contrast : In the 1950s, the first optical works were based on the contrast between black and white. It is then either retinal persistence or the brain's interpretation that will give rise to an optical illusion or movement in the work.
The moiré effect : The moiré effect is obtained by interlacing black and white lines, then in color. The superimposition of the frames gives the effect of a changing and moving work to the spectator who moves while the layers of lines are motionless
The GRAV : Some optokinetic artists have come together in a collective, the Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel (GRAV) with the aim of allowing everyone to approach their art. This is why they have privileged an art directly accessible by the spectator where he can touch and manipulate the works.

« We want to interest the spectator, get him out of inhibitions, relax him. We want to involve him. We want to put him in a situation that he triggers and transforms. We want it to move towards interaction with other viewers. We want to develop in the spectator a strong capacity for perception and action. »

/// DISCOVERING AIGLE

After your visit to the exhibition of kinetik artworks Spirale, Aigle, a city with an authentic atmosphere and picturesque alleys, offers you its treasures...

From its centre, you can easily reach the mountain resorts and the shores of Lake Geneva by train: Aigle could be the ideal starting point for many excursions, but there is already so much to do there !

Its medieval castle, long restored, preserves the collections of the Museum of the Vine and Wine, a well of knowledge on the wine culture. The vines that surround it produce great vintages known throughout Switzerland, in particular from the Chasselas king grape variety. The cream of these white wines meets at the château each year for a unique event: the Mondial du Chasselas.
Beyond the vineyards, Aigle enjoys an Adventure Park with 11 accrobranche routes, the Montreux Golf Club with its 18-hole course sheltered by age-old trees and the World Cycling Centre (WCC). The WCC is home to the International Cycling Union, as well as state-of-the-art tracks and equipment that will allow tomorrow's athletes to train in the best conditions.

To discover :

Ailyos : In addition to the exhibition of mobile artworks, the Aigle, Leysin and Col des Mosses region offers visitors the opportunity to discover an open-air art gallery during the summer period, walking visitors from one work to another along an itinerary between the 3 communes.
Works that have meaning in terms of their integration in the chosen places, pushing the spectator to contemplation, reflection and participation. Exceptional places like the Berneuse, Mayen and the Suchet forest in Leysin Lake Lioson aux Mosses or the vineyard balconies and the castle in Aigle, have been chosen to host these works.

Old Aigle Town : Let yourself stroll... walk around and find the signs of yesteryear. The city of Aigle has a rich past many witnesses are still visible: the incalculable arcades of the street Jerusalem, the Old wash-house of the district of the Fountain, precisely the fountains and other sculptures, to discover the time of a stroll.

Aigle and its past : The first houses date from the 12th century around the castle. Savoyard town since 1232, Aigle took its name from a Savoyard family « Alio » whose patronymic ancestor bore the nickname « Aquileius » referring to the Latin name of the bird « aquila ».

Aigle Castel : In the heart of the Chablais AOC wine-growing region, the Musée de la vigne, du vin et de l'étiquette is a must for all wine tourism stays. On the exceptional site of Château d'Aigle, its exhibitions delight wine lovers, as well as families who discover this culture while having fun. Everyone can marvel at the medieval atmosphere of the site and its unique spaces.

Walks and games throughout the city : The Aigle Code , Fountain Trail, « Of Streets an Men » Walk, The Eagle-Wolf Trail,
