Sculpture: Aesthetic + Functional Structure
Course No. SCU229A Credits: 3.0
Faculty Amber Kempthorn
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.
Sculpture: Art + Public Space
Course No. SCU39X/49X Credits: 3.0
This studio-based sculpture and installation class investigates the production and reception of art in the context of the public space. Central to the course will be the development of the student's individual creative desire to engage different kinds of space. Practices of art and public space extend from the earliest known civilizations. This class will introduce historic examples and examine recent developments in terms of participatory art, community art, interactions, place-based art, public art, site specific art and art in public places, both locally and in broader international situations. Students who work with public space in the context of communication such as the Internet, social media or locally as a condition of collectives and collaboratives might find this interdisciplinary condition an interesting alternative beyond the normal space for art production. Open to all students.
Course No. SCU399/499 Credits: 0.0
Elective credit can be given on a case-by- case basis for an internship developed by student through the career services office, with advance permission of instructor and head of department.
Sculpture: Multimedia: From Space + Time
Course No. SCU241/341/441 Credits: 3.0
This course is designed to explore materials (traditional and non-traditional) and ideas of sculpture outside of the formats usually associated with it. The goal is for students to push the boundaries of sculpture as installation art, video, and film. Projects will deal with visibility and invisibility, ephemerality, sound, time, gender, and social issues in relation to sculpture, and will use indoor and outdoor site-specific or performance-oriented formats. Fundamental aspects of this course are the analysis, expression, experimentation, and deconstruction of existing values and the reconstruction of one's own relation to popular culture, theory and other fields of interest (such as science, music, philosophy, etc.).
Course No. IME311 Credits: 0.0
This class is focused on aspects of sound design related to the practice of sonic arts. Sound art is flourishing in museums and galleries, on networks, and performed at festivals and performance venues around the world. Like many genres of contemporary art, sound art is interdisciplinary with investigations in: digital manipulation of sound, sound synthesis, sound installation, sound sculpture, psychoacoustics, field recording, noise composition, integrated sound and image works for pre-recorded presentation or performed live. The influence of these forms on popular music, television and cinema scores will also be explored.
String, Felt, and Thread
Course No. FIB267 Credits: 3.0
Faculty William Lorton
This is an introduction to Fiber and Material Studies. Students will follow materials from the raw state to the finished form, learning how to manipulate them at every stage. Material and process are often bound together, so a wide variety of techniques of making form from string, thread and fiber will be covered. Students will learn to make informed material choices based on an understanding of the history and associations of each material. Students will be introduced to contemporary criticism, and questions surrounding craft and the history of art. Required 2nd year FMS Majors. Open Elective. Offered fall.
The Extended Body
Course No. FIB320/420 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Christina Cassara
This class will address the amplification and expansion of the body into space and the role of the senses in perception. Studio work will begin with a consideration of how we understand the world though touch, sight, smell/taste, the sense of hearing, and kinesthetic perception supplied by muscles of the body. Costume, object-generated performance and social sculpture are examples of the directions taken by students. Media, processes and techniques are open and will be based on individual interests, knowledge and skill sets. Open elective. Required Junior year FMS Majors. 3 credits.
The Rhetorical Object: Conceptual Constructions
Course No. SCU370/470 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Christian Wulffen | Christopher Whittey | Sarah Paul | William Lorton
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Sculpture: Basic Materials & Techniques | Sculpture: Aesthetic + Functional Structure
This course focuses on student intent with regard to artistic production and their ability to allow for audience entry into a dialogue concerning the conceptual issues forwarded by their work. Students are expected to identify the content of the work they would like to explore via a rhetorical method that embraces an interconnected relationship between practice and theory as part of a project-based approach for the production of self-directed work. Required at the junior level for all Sculpture majors and open to all junior and senior level students. Prerequisites: SCU229 Basic Materials: Processes and Techniques OR SCU229A Fundamental Structure: The Aesthetics of Materiality.
