CAEL2092: Sculpture: Form and Materials

2024 unit information

This unit of study introduces building processes relevant to Sculpture and Installation. You will learn basic construction techniques alongside a series of material-based workshop activities to gain confidence in the safe use of machinery and equipment within the studio and workshoops. You will consider a range of ideas, including negative forms and anti-monuments, challenging the preconceptions of 'what is sculpture?'. The unit introduces a broad range of traditional and contemporary sculptural practices: including the use of wood, metal, fibre, clay, plaster wax, soap and found-objects. The unit combines studio work, seminars, student presentations, group discussions and critiques.
