VIS3531 Sculpture: Art and Environment
Credit Points: 15

In this unit students explore art making in relation to natural and built environments. International perspectives on historical and contemporary 3D art forms and art movements (Land Art, Earth Art, ecoart, performance art, ephemeral art, sound sculpture) are analysed and students learn about core concepts and processes for constructing and assembling objects, strategies for articulating space, and collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. Conceptual development skills are combined with technical and materials workshops, which include a focus on sustainable practice. Students develop spatial and sensory analysis skills to propose and then create a unique site-specific project for public exhibition in conjunction with a commercial gallery sculpture park.
