Sculpture: Space and Reproduction Through Mould Making and Surface Replication (ARTV2807)

Sculpture, Space and Reproduction aims to develop student awareness of positive and negative space through the production of multiples and mould making processes. Students will be introduced to the practical and conceptual underpinnings of mould making while continuing to extend their knowledge of formal properties of casting. Historical and contemporary examples of artists using this approach to making will be referenced. Students will produce a series of approaches to mould making including silicon rubber and piece moulding to produce wax positives for future casting. Students will keep visual and technical diaries and studio theory aims to develop critical and evaluative skills to interpret and understand sculpture within a contemporary and historical context. Workplace health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
