Sculpture: Space and Negative to Positive Reproduction through mould making and surface replication (ARTV6803)

Sculpture: Space and Negative to Positive Reproduction aims to develop students' awareness of space as an artistic principle through the production of multiples and mould-making processes. Students will be introduced to the practical and conceptual underpinnings of mould-making while developing their understanding of the 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 moulds to produce wax positives for future casting. Students will develop a study plan for independent study in consultation with staff which will be supported by studio investigations. Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) instruction is integral to the course.
