Studio Art 112. Spatial Dynamics

Spatial dynamics is an exploration of objects in space and the space within objects. As a gateway course in the Department of Art and Art History, our approach will focus on the fundamental possibilities of form and structure as embraced by artists, designers, architects, and other careful observers of the world. Participants will respond to theoretical challenges by creating objects with quick and easy-to-manipulate materials like paper, clay, and plaster. Work will take place individually and in collaboration. Projects will be hands-on and through critical discussion, students will emerge equipped with tools to conceive of dynamic and meaningful objects.
