Making Meaningful Things

Spring 2019

Taught By: Hilda Shen

Section: A

CRN: 2528

Credits: 3

In this three dimensional project based studio, students will explore the relationships between materials, techniques and form to design and build meaningful objects, installations and systems. How can a material be shaped to represent ideas through form? Using an array of methods and materials students explore the logic, history and production of the handmade object. Projects can include fashioning a utilitarian object, an urban installation, or a conceptual service design intervention. Various methods for prototyping and three-dimensional ideation in relation to a variety of practices will give students the skills to understand how making helps to give form to meaning.
