Tinguely's kinetic art in the Dada tradition is well known as metamechanics. 
In 1930 the artist began experiments with mechanical sculptures and he tried to put motors to the objects and so to make them rotate.
               Meta-matic No 10, 1959.Materials:iron alloy, paint, rubber, electric motor.
In 1960 he led to Nouveau Realisme and later on created his first monumental work using scrap metal.
He exploded it in front of Milan Cathedral. The same year he used everyday's materials which combined with motors. The result was the motion because the motor caused and produced it.
