1 Minute Sculptures
In this short project, you will use common materials and yourselves to make sculptures inspired by the work of Erwin Wurm.
“The idea is for you to exist in this dimension — as an art object yourself — only at
this one time,” he explained. “I am giving ‘sculpture’ a participatory, temporal
factor.” Erwin Wurm
First, read this article:
For this work, use yourself, some found objects, and your phone and tripod to create novel forms and compositions. You should think about gravity, positive and negative space, balance, and ambiguity. Create 3 separate 1 minute sculptures.
A few tips:
The sculptures should be ambiguous. Don’t try to make it look like something has happened. Stay away from puns.
Use simple objects in novel ways, and focus on the physicality of the sculpture. Uncomfortableness can be a really interesting dynamic.
Shoot your photos on a simple background, and get extraneous information out of the frame. Use portrait mode to blur the background.
All work should be turned in to the class Miro Board by 11:59pm Wednesday the 2nd
Make sure to put your name and connect it to your photos.
