ART 229 - Introduction to Sculpture 1

Paradigms of space, from map to model, shift radically from epoch to epoch. Reflecting these shifts, sculpture since Minimalism, has increasingly redefined its notion of 'form' and 'objectness' to include the surrounding perceptual space, temporal practices, and the socio-political constituents of space. Students are introduced to materials and methods of object/structure building, process and time based practices, and the relationship of sculpture to media and visual culture.
