For this assignment i have constructed one interactive sculpture, and two stationary sculptures.
For Figure, (LEFT) the viewer will be asked to view into the mirror set up while holding the Figure paper. The viewer will see through the word figure on the page, see through to the mirror to see themselves yet agin through the word figure a second time. This is an interactive commentary on the abstract of the word figure, how that is who we are and what we represent as people.
For House, (TOP RIGHT) I have recreated the interior door and wall of Bilbo Baggins Bag End from the series The Lord of the Rings, as well as from The Hobbit. I choose specifically this type of house, because of my love of the series and my desire to live in a ‘hobbit hole’.
For Shadowbox, (BOTTOM RIGHT) I have chosen to do a jungle landscape. Angles and negative space were the main principles I manipulated for this project.
Below will be in progress photos:
For this assignment I am going to choose the art styles, Art Nouveau and Gothic.
For the Art Nouveau time period I have chosen a piece from famous artist Alphonse Mucha, alongside pieces of architecture to gain a fuller understanding of the design involved with that era.
Alphonse Mucha, F. Champenois Imprimeur-Éditeur:
Riga, Lativia; Art Nouveau building
And as for the Gothic,
Milan, Italy; Milan Cathedral
