Bodies of Knowledge and Three-Dimensional Design (ART 004 060, 061)

November 2, 2023 9:40AM

Pairs of students collaboratively responded to a singular work in the LUAG Bodies of Knowledge exhibition with wearable cardboard objects that expand, limit, or alter the capabilities of the body and require engagement or "activation" from both users simultaneously. Beginning with sketches in the galleries, students translated their original impressions into paper and cardboard prototypes that were refined as they explored various attachment and reinforcement methods. The realized cardboard wearables were photographed at the Digital Media Studios, worn or activated with consideration for effectively communicating their function and intended use. Students directed placement, pose, dress and props, in addition to formal considerations like composition and framing to pay clear homage to their selected work from the exhibition.
