Movement Studies

During the first week of April students in the ARTS 308 sculpture class executed their third mini-exhibition – “Movement Studies.” Eleven solo and team projects explored kinesthetic qualities of the body and nature. The exhibition took place in and around Langford Architecture Complex. Non-site-specific pieces were displayed in Studio A. Students were instructed to create kinetic sculptures encompassing body-movement and natural energy, such as wind or gravity. The pieces-including a balloon column, a glass tank which levitated bubbles on heavier than air gas, fabric drapes over the bridge, and a full-body puppet cast of a horse. All work revealed physical forces through the sculpture’s form.
