Blend construction methods, design, and functionality of contemporary sculptural installation as you explore processes, techniques, and concepts. Design and build structures using a variety of materials from plaster casts to fabric. You will review site, place, and juxtaposition of objects, meaning, and content to push your work to greater spatial heights. Class time may also include documentation of sculpture through video, photo, audio, and written formats as you consider moving your sculpture(s) into installation projects.
