Taught By: Jose DeJesus
In this course, we will learn through first-hand experience in Parsons' modeling facilities and hybrid studio/shop classrooms. We will explore concepts such as malleability, weight, texture, color, durability, smell, sound, taste, life cycle and ecological impacts through a wide variety of projects that privilege the close relationship of making to thinking. Other areas of inquiry range from space formation to environmental psychology to object exploration–and more–to discover how materials and their uses shape meaning. Discussion, critique and written responses create class community and idea sharing, while helping students understand their work in historical and cultural contexts. This section will focus on how our community provides us with our most direct means of self-identification. 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 and the material nature of social and ecological space.
