Art of Survival

Art of Survival: Sculpture of Staying Alive
What does it mean to have the basic necessities of life? Are food, water, and shelter enough? Do we not need human interaction, culture, and art? We will apply basic survival strategies (indoors and out) to questions of environmental need and sustenance. Sculpture projects will involve making devices for foraging food, building shelter, and constructing community. Artwork will be born of necessity but driven by aesthetics, using our hands to shape the world we inhabit. We will employ sculptural methods developed throughout human history to confront tensions between individual desires and collective societal needs. Our goal is to illuminate our choices and how they impact survival. 3 hrs. lect./lab
