ARTS 4760 Fibers V: Install, Mat, & Cont

Prerequisite: ARTS 3730, 3740, and 4750. This course examines the transformation and definition of space through the use of materials including hard and soft, flexible, found and alternative and the meanings these materials invoke. The implications of inter-dependency, rearrangement, and responsiveness to time within an environment are considered. The concept of installation includes relationships of objects, environments, and site-specific works, and will examine a range of spaces: public/private, interior/exterior, urban/rural. Concepts are developed through research, material investigations, and developments of both two and three-dimensional explorations. Emphasis is placed on both collaborative and individual direction. Additional studio fee required; see semester course schedule for amount.
