Dynamics.
The active or static nature of an image which may be experienced in two ways:

a). By its physical form in terms of figure-ground organization: whether it is still or in motion.

b). By the psychological quality of its content: whether it is stirring and forceful, or calm and serene.

[Collier, Graham. Form, Space & Vision, An Introduction to Drawing and Design. Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, 1985.]



Measures of Vitality
Compositional factors (interrelationships) imply the operation of certain kinds of force or energy and thus endow the situation with a particular measure of vitality . . . .

Form in terms of two structural dynamics:
1. Volume and movement/linear point thrust.... Composition in terms of Equilibrium/Turbulence and Stability/Motion = two dominant manifestations of energy or "life."

2. Tautness/vigorous situation, such as plasticity tested to limits or the exhibition of intensity or of a sense of stress.

Dynamic [< F dynamique < GK dynamik (os)...] 1. Physics. The branch of mechanics that deals with the motion and equilibrium of systems under the action of forces, usually from outside the system. 2. The motivating or driving forces, physical or moral, in any field. 3. The pattern of History or growth, change, and development in any field. 4. Variation and gradation in the volume of musical sound. [Urdang, Laurence, ed. Random House Dictionary of The English Language. New York: Random House,1968.]
