Sculpture Courses

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.

Time-Based Strategies

Course No. SCU235X  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Marc Tomko

This course will provide students with an opportunity to investigate the concepts and practices of various time-based media arts. A basic introduction to the processes of video art, sound art, and media installation will serve as the basis for the production of several projects. Assignments will be grounded in the development of media literacy, media ethics, dissemination techniques, and teamwork.

TIME: Internshp

Course No. TIM399/499  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.

Weaving Patterns: Collective Activity

Course No. FIB275  Credits: 3.0
Faculty William Lorton

Students will learn to weave and explore the possibilities of the process on traditional floor looms (floor, tapestry, Computer-assisted Dobby) and alternative weaving devices (constructed from found objects or using architectural influences). Technical vocabulary and conceptual focus will be developed through an investigation of process, material, tools and the many and varied histories of weaving. The intersection between weaving and collaboration will be explored in discussions on the development of pattern/structure as a form of communication; looms built in situ; implication of globalization on craft production; traditional and contemporary practice of gifting; and social participation. Required sophomore FMS majors. Open elective.
