Taught By: John Jerard

Section: A01

CRN: 2231

Credits: 3

Building is an act of transformation. How do we translate a thought into a thing? How do we take an idea from a flat world to a three-dimensional world? In this class you will learn the techniques of physical construction: joining, inserting, interlocking, nesting, slotting, folding, collapsing. You will also come to understand how force, resistance and gravity affect construction. Space / Materiality will look at three types of space: haptic (related to touch); inhabited (lived in or occupied space); and social and environmental (related to society and the natural world). We embrace learning through failure, taking a trial and error approach to finding out about material properties. We will experiment with concepts such as malleability, weight, texture, durability, and think about ways to engage all the senses as we create three-dimensional projects. Discussion, critique, and written responses will create a class community of idea-sharing. These will help you to understand your work in historical and cultural contexts, including the social and ecological impacts of the materials you use.

Building is an act of transformation. How do we translate a thought into a thing? How do we take an idea from a flat world to a three-dimensional world? In this class you will learn the techniques of physical construction: joining, inserting, interlocking, nesting, slotting, folding, collapsing. You will also come to understand how force, resistance and gravity affect construction. Space / Materiality will look at three types of space: haptic (related to touch); inhabited (lived in or occupied space); and social and environmental (related to society and the natural world). We embrace learning through failure, taking a trial and error approach to finding out about material properties. We will experiment with concepts such as malleability, weight, texture, durability, and think about ways to engage all the senses as we create three-dimensional projects. Discussion, critique, and written responses will create a class community of idea-sharing. These will help you to understand your work in historical and cultural contexts, including the social and ecological impacts of the materials you use.

This section will be framed through the keyword “body.” A body is a physical form that contains living beings. When we refer to “the body,” whose body are we referencing? How do we understand the complexities and nuances of individual bodies within the context of culture, community, history and language? This section will focus on how bodies have an impact on our surroundings and the objects within it. How do ergonomics, structure, and self-image correspond to the shape, movement and impact of the human form? We will use a range of methods to explore concepts of personal space, costuming and decorating the body, and how objects function in relationship to the body.

This section will be framed through the keyword “community." Community is defined as a group of people with a commonality of characteristic, interests or goals. We form our personal identities within our communities. A community may define itself through its ethnicity, country of origin, political beliefs, religious beliefs, neighborhood, educational background, or any number of common identifying factors. How do our attitudes about what we wear, how we interact, and how we come together define both our personal space and our shared space? This course will explore the relationship between the shifting boundaries of community.

This section will be framed through the keyword “culture.” Culture can be understood as a set of shared behaviors and traditions. What is the role of the artist and designer within their own narrow definition of culture? How do artists and designers even define and describe culture? Do we do this by our city, state, country, continent? How do we contribute to and advance the cultures of which we are a part? Students will create objects and environments that reflect and respond to existing definitions of cultural identities, and will explore the relationship of the individual to the larger society.

Building is an act of transformation. How do we translate a thought into a thing? How do we take an idea from a flat world to a three-dimensional world? In this class you will learn the techniques of physical construction: joining, inserting, interlocking, nesting, slotting, folding, collapsing. You will also come to understand how force, resistance and gravity affect construction. Space / Materiality will look at three types of space: haptic (related to touch); inhabited (lived in or occupied space); and social and environmental (related to society and the natural world). We embrace learning through failure, taking a trial and error approach to finding out about material properties. We will experiment with concepts such as malleability, weight, texture, durability, and think about ways to engage all the senses as we create three-dimensional projects. Discussion, critique, and written responses will create a class community of idea-sharing. These will help you to understand your work in historical and cultural contexts, including the social and ecological impacts of the materials you use. This section will be framed through the keyword “community." Community is defined as a group of people with a commonality of characteristic, interests or goals. We form our personal identities within our communities. A community may define itself through its ethnicity, country of origin, political beliefs, religious beliefs, neighborhood, educational background, or any number of common identifying factors. How do our attitudes about what we wear, how we interact, and how we come together define both our personal space and our shared space? This course will explore the relationship between the shifting boundaries of community.

This section will be framed through the keyword “body.” A body is a physical form that contains living beings. When we refer to “the body,” whose body are we referencing? How do we understand the complexities and nuances of individual bodies within the context of culture, community, history and language? This section will focus on how bodies have an impact on our surroundings and the objects within it. How do ergonomics, structure, and self-image correspond to the shape, movement and impact of the human form? We will use a range of methods to explore concepts of personal space, costuming and decorating the body, and how objects function in relationship to the body.

Building is an act of transformation. How do we translate a thought into a thing? How do we take an idea from a flat world to a three-dimensional world? In this class you will learn the techniques of physical construction: joining, inserting, interlocking, nesting, slotting, folding, collapsing. You will also come to understand how force, resistance and gravity affect construction. Space / Materiality will look at three types of space: haptic (related to touch); inhabited (lived in or occupied space); and social and environmental (related to society and the natural world). We embrace learning through failure, taking a trial and error approach to finding out about material properties. We will experiment with concepts such as malleability, weight, texture, durability, and think about ways to engage all the senses as we create three-dimensional projects. Discussion, critique, and written responses will create a class community of idea-sharing. These will help you to understand your work in historical and cultural contexts, including the social and ecological impacts of the materials you use. This section will be framed through the keyword “body.” A body is a physical form that contains living beings. When we refer to “the body,” whose body are we referencing? How do we understand the complexities and nuances of individual bodies within the context of culture, community, history and language? This section will focus on how bodies have an impact on our surroundings and the objects within it. How do ergonomics, structure, and self-image correspond to the shape, movement and impact of the human form? We will use a range of methods to explore concepts of personal space, costuming and decorating the body, and how objects function in relationship to the body.

This section will be framed through the keyword “culture.” Culture can be understood as a set of shared behaviors and traditions. What is the role of the artist and designer within their own narrow definition of culture? How do artists and designers even define and describe culture? Do we do this by our city, state, country, continent? How do we contribute to and advance the cultures of which we are a part? Students will create objects and environments that reflect and respond to existing definitions of cultural identities, and will explore the relationship of the individual to the larger society.
