Kinetic Art
The term kinetic art describe art that moves, driven by atmospheric forces like wind ( eg Calder's mobiles ) or by motors, magnets etc.

The term kinetic sculpture refers to a class of art made primarily from the late 1950s through 1960s. Kinetic art was first recorded by the sculptors Naum Gabo and Antoine Pevsner in their Realist Manifesto issued as part of a manifesto of constructivism in 1920 in Moscow. "Bicycle Wheel," of 1913, by Marcel Duchamp, is said to be the first kinetic sculpture.
