The Motion of Matter is a research project and exhibition by Michaela French and Johanna Bolton based upon Aristotle’s description of motion 'as the passage of matter into form'.

Aristotle postulated that no observation of the physical world could ignore the principles of motion. He classified motion into four categories:

- motion which affects the substance of a thing
- motion which brings about changes in quality
- motion which brings about changes in quantity
- motion which brings about locomotion

Through structured and intimate observations, the Motion of Matter investigates the multitude of ways motion changes our interpretations of and interactions with the material world.

The exhibition includes two and three dimensional objects, moving image, light, shadow and projection, artist’s books and performance.
