a frontal sculpture that evokes the interior space of a researched work of art using
found objects, collage, and mixed media.
In this project, you will research works form artists on the provided list. After looking through and selecting at least three artists, pick one single work to focus on. You will then create a frontal sculptural work that gives a look into what you imagine the interior of the sculpture might be. Your work does not have to be a literal look at the physicality of the interior space, it can expand upon, expound upon and extend the work from the outside in. What odes it mean to look inside something? How do you picture the interior space of an idea?
Use this space to create a work that implies a large,
dynamic interior space.
What are some qualities of your selected work you can explore?
- Subject Matter
How do you use your available resources to evoke these spaces?
Write these things down, and the associations that go with them.
Make a chart where you draw lines from objects to descriptions and
think about the complexity and variability of the associations you can
What are some of the strategies you can use? Extension, inversion, structural, emphasis, contrast
- Shoe Box
