The author considers systems capable of growth within the framework of the aesthetics of kinetic art and George Rickey's morphology of movement. He explains fundamental growth types as the kinetic aspects of a class of structurally coupled autonomous systems. Two paradigms are treated with examples: the settling of clans competing for space and the concurrent sprouting of up to three plants. The author uses and explains his method of morphography, which generally requires of the artistically inclined scientist the design and usage of computer-generated figures called morphograms.
