Space Entanglement/G&D2

  Moulding Copyright: Friedrich

In the seminar we deal with the connection, linking, interlacing, intersection, reversal, distortion, confusion ... in short, with the entanglement of pictorial and plastic forms in a neutral experimental space - the White Cube. Drawings on walls and floor - objects and reliefs that develop in different directions coming from the ceiling - writings that float in the air ... colors, placed in the room! Lines, surfaces, colors, grids, free forms or objects become entangled in a communicative situation in the form of a model-like spatial installation. From different angles, the installation presents itself in very different ways; but perhaps the angle of view is limited and predetermined - an illusion is created in the viewer.

Task: Create your own White Cube as a model room for your installation. Experiment with materials, images, colors, light, etc. and develop a concept that encompasses all dimensions of the white cube - including the viewing angle. You determine the size yourself (max. 50x50x50 cm). Approach the concept with sketches and simulations and convert it into a coherent, model-like statement.

Procedure: At the beginning, design games are undertaken according to simple, given themes, which outline the complexity of the theme in successive steps. In the further course of the seminar, different principles and methods of spatial representation are considered in a differentiated way: Pictorial space, color space, illusionistic space, spatial and spatial objecthood and their intersection in the model.

Goal: The aim is to create an artistically designed spatial installation that reveals a coherent form and line management as well as an aesthetically consistent use of material and color. The content of the models can be very different - conception, composition, materiality and all other artistic levels should merge into a content-formal unity. In the process, we also learn about and distinguish between different artistic styles through references. dates: The event will be digitally supervised. Supervision and group support take place on Wednesdays from 13 - 16 o'clock via Zoom.

Materials: The materials can be varied and are provided by the participants themselves. Special materials can be picked up at cost price from the sculptor's studio by arrangement.

Course times: Wednesdays from 1pm - 4pm
