Description: This studio course will be a place to practice. Through sculptural and performative intervention, students will practice materializing space and place. Space is being defined as immaterial – the thing in-between things. Place as material – the geography of the thing, the location of the immaterial. Within our universal understanding of art, place can be identified in a variety of ways: painting, drawing, photography, etc. Each formal output is the materialization of space. In this course, we will work through the ways in which we can materialize a three-dimensional one. Students will use various technologies and materials including, the artist's body and plaster, to perform ideas and offer an understanding of a lived experience. Studio assignments will be accompanied by lectures, visiting artists workshops and field trips.
