Bricolage provides graduate students with an introduction to working with found objects to create sculptural assemblage. This course introduces students to the material properties of found objects and to the possibilities presented by them within art practice. A variety of forming methods are introduced and formal, material, process and conceptual issues are addressed. Bricolage can re-purpose materials and create meaning bringing new perspectives and subversions to critique conventional contexts. Students will use basic hand tools and small power tools to produce a body of small works with particular emphasis on the material relationship between components and constructing narratives. Students will keep visual and technical diaries and develop critical and evaluative skills to interpret and understand artworks within a contemporary and historical context. Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
