Credits: 3

In this special topics 3D class, students learn about different approaches to sculpture, installation, and object making with special emphasis on performativity. The goal is to explore objects as extensions of the body/adornment, the body as object, installation spaces activated by participation, and kinetic objects that perform on their own. Research on artists working performatively in sculpture include Cassils, Ann Hamilton, Jordan Wolfson, Guadalupe Maravilla, Jacolby Satterwhite, Pat Oleszko, and Scott Burton among others. In addition to contemporary artists active in the field, this course will include readings and lectures by theorists and new materialists like Jane Bennett to scaffold students’ artistic production. By the end of this course students will demonstrate nuanced understanding of object performativity and have executed four major projects on the themes listed here.

This course fuses the digital to the real world. Making sculptures that range from small-scale objects to both proposed and realized installations, students will utilize 21st-century means of drawing at the intersection of the Parsons Making Center. Through Computer Aided Drawing (CAD), rendering, rapid prototyping, and a headfirst dive into the E4 metal shop, students will make their way through their concepts while exploring a range of artists and practitioners who employ similar literacies. This course will examine the work of Baseera Khan, Grace Lee Lawrence, David Howe, Jonathan Brand, David Hammonds, The Ben Keating Foundry, Maker Space NYC, as well as many others. div>Open to: Bachelors degree in Fine Arts majors, others by permission of the Fine Arts program.
