VART2145 Sculpture: Materials and Processes (3 units)
- VART1006 Visual Arts Practice II or any GDCV courses offered by AVA or any Visual Arts courses
We live in a built environment. This environment is defined by different structures and objects, and their spatial relationships. In an effort to interpret our environment and to create new places and forms, this course will explore through in and out of class projects how structures and forms are built through an additive process. This course is designed to bring to light different ways of understanding how sculpture has been made, can be made and explore new methods for the continuance of the discipline into a contemporary context. This course not only looks at sculpture as an independent form but sculpture as an expanded discipline that reaches into many realms expanding our perception to three dimensional space and experience.
This course explores the tools and techniques of additive production and the capacities of the wood shop, metal shop and sculpture studio. A series of small projects designed to build students' skill base in carpentry, metalworking and general structural challenges will be considered and applied. In addition, students are invited to incorporate projects from other AVA courses or their individual studio practice into the course.
