SCLP 215 - Body as Meaning
Understanding sculpture both in the conventional and "expanded" sense, in this course students will experience a radical reconception of how the artist's body itself can be employed as both a physical agent and source of content in the production of contemporary sculpture. Enacting physically embodied approaches to art production serves to explore and make visible the fundamental reciprocities and embedded relationships between our physical self and surrounding environments. Physical scale, wearable objects, interactivity, body casting, and figurative sculpture will be examined.
