From the twitch of a finger to the expansion of the universe, motion informs and shapes every facet of our world and culture. Figure of Motion is itself a dynamic publication, shifting easily from renaissance philosophy to modern media across ten essays and interviews, as it investigates how motion is observed, depicted and designed in art, architecture, design, dance, technology and everyday life. This collection addresses a range of topics, from the “physical intelligence” of athletic bodies to the choreographies of car design and surveillance cameras; the ways movement protects buildings and dematerializes landscapes; and what it takes to move ourselves emotionally or move us to act. More than a historical survey, Figure of Motion is ultimately about change and the accelerating directions in which our world’s flows of money, goods and knowledge are currently taking us.
