This is a Dick Blick Lesson Adapted for my students
"In 1913, Marcel DuChamp mounted a spinning bicycle wheel to a stool to make what is considered the first kinetic sculpture. Since then, many artists have paired physical science and engineering with artistic vision to create amazing pieces of mechanical sculpture. This simple, pulley-operated design has students design “gears” that spin on spools when a string is pulled. " A DICK BLICK LESSON
Art that is designed to incorporate motion is classified as Kinetic Art. Encompassing a wide variety of techniques and styles, the movement in the artwork may be caused by a viewer, by wind currents, by water flow or by mechanical means.

Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today, it would be considered “steampunk.”
