Scuptural Design 1a/G&D1

  Sculptures of concrete Copyright: © K:G

By grasping objects and spaces by hand, we internalise our perception physically and create a mental basis for creative thinking.

In the workshops and studios of the department, we investigate methods of sculptural and spatial design in experimental dealings with classical and unconventional materials. What matters to us here is the development of skills that evolve in the making. The slowed-down time of working by hand then enables reflection and imagination out of the concrete material experience.

The first exercise, "Nature Form", is based on a pictorial investigation of natural forms as acting + becoming, dynamic, self-forming processes.
