The goal of this course is to expose students to the qualitative nature of materiality at a fundamental level and to provide them with a formative understanding of the various aesthetic qualities that materials possess. In other words this course introduces how materials influence the meaning of a work of art. This course addresses how the qualities of material act as determine aesthetic organization and conditions of conveyance within a work. The course focuses on both the physicality of material condition(s) of state-change, intensive material exploration and experimentation as a function of structure, and its affect on aesthetic production. Required at the sophomore level for all Sculpture majors and open to all other students. Offered spring.
