ASSC 3320 - Body and Object


Credits: 3

An intensive sculptural study of the body and figure that addresses the body through its objective structure and its social and psychological meanings and explores how these can be conveyed in contemporary practice. In class, students focus on the observation and direct study of the figure and its tactile translation into material. Out of class, students focus on independent projects to consider the question of the body as a metaphoric and performative subject, to explore the body’s material and immaterial nature, and to create work about the figure without literal reference to it. Requires 6 hours of studio work outside of scheduled meeting times. Prerequisites: 6 credit hours in ASSC courses and 12 credit hours in ASAG courses, or permission of instructor.
