Sculpture: Space and Shape Investigations with Soft Sculpture, Pattern Making and Armature (ARTV2808)

This course introduces students to soft sculpture through pattern making and armature and utilizes processes including sewing, knitting, crochet, simple construction and skinning. Students will respond sculpturally to ideas that transform and subvert the natural character of objects through space, scale, function, meaning and materiality. This unit will develop time management skills and expand on knowledge of composition and structure in 3D space. Students will keep visual and technical diaries and studio theory aims to develop critical and evaluative skills to interpret and understand artworks within a contemporary art context. Workplace Health and Safety instruction is an integral part of the course.
