Jun 13 - 17, 2022
Sculpture, Architecture and Abstraction
This small-scale sculpture course explores the intersections between architectural model and tabletop sculpture. Students reconsider and recreate the properties, sensations and language surrounding monuments, sites and structures at a domestic scale. Students also use economical construction methods with basic wood, foam, resin and mixed-media assembly. Modular units, structural stability, color, light and context are investigated. Tools and materials are stretched to their limits and methods practiced in the course remain achievable long after the workshop’s conclusion.
