Installlation: Light + Sound

Course No. SCU230A/330A/430A  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Sarah Paul
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Sculpture: Basic Materials & Techniques | Sculpture: Aesthetic + Functional Structure

Sculptural installation is a condition of space that is neither object bound nor object-centric in its existence but rather presents a condition that is often identified as immersive and intentionally organized to produce a spatially dependent experience beyond that of the “Everyday”. This course will investigate various applications and approaches to subject of Installation with an emphasis on contemporary practices using light and sound as a means of constructing space and form. Primary to this course are the understandings of light (lighting) as both a material and structural element with regard to organization and presentation and the combined relationship of sound as an immersive component in the production of installation-based works. Required at the junior level for all Sculpture majors and open to all other students at the sophomore level and above. Prerequisites: SCU229 Basic Materials Processes and Techniques OR SCU229A Fundamental Structure: The Aesthetics of Materiality.
