Sculptural Book Final Sculptural Book Final Presentation Transcript

  • Sculptural Book
    Sculpture II Final
  • Sculptural Book
    Books are meant to be read…but have you ever thought about turning one into a sculpture?
    For this final project you will deconstruct and modify a book, turning it into a sculpture.
    You can manipulate the book in any way you would like by cutting, folding, removing parts, adding elements, etc.
  • Book Art
  • Your Activity
    You will create a sculptural book from an existing hard cover book by altering and deconstructing it. Your sculpture should…
    be inspired by a book artist
    show at least 3 of the elements and principles of art/design
    tell a story or have a theme
  • Materials & Processes
    Your sculptural book may be constructed using any material or combination of materials explored in Sculpture I and II, as well as any others materials, processes and ideas you may bring into class or research on the internet.
    The foundation or basis of your sculpture should be a book… what you add to it (or take away) is completely up to you.
  • Motivation & Inspiration
    Your piece must show influence of a sculptural book artist from the list below. If you find another artist during your research and would like to use them as inspiration, please see me for approval.
    Book Artists:
    Brian Dettmer
    Su Blackwell
    Robert The
    Cara Barer
    Jacqueline Rush Lee
    Daniel Essig
    Issak Salazar
  • Don’t Forget
    Your sculptural book must focus on at least 3 of the elements and principles of art and tell a story or have an overarching theme or concept.
  • What You’ll Do:
    Research Book Artists and choose ONE that you will use as influence for your own sculptural book.
    Complete sketchbook assignment. See handout for more details and directions.
    Bio on the artist you are influenced by
    Images of artwork you are using as inspiration AND from the artist you have chosen
    YOUR OWN idea development, influence and thumbnail sketches – include elements and principles and story or theme
    FIVE detailed drawings that illustrate your final piece
  • What You’ll Do:
    Meet with teacher to review research and discuss ideas and plans.
    Using materials you have planned, inspiration from the artist, and your sketches and notes, create your own book sculpture.
    Complete and hand-in your final project, sketchbook pages, rubric, and reflection.
  • Tips:
    Detailed research of an artist that you like will improve your final project.
    Consider the elements and principles – how can you incorporate them or make them a focus of your book?
    Go beyond the expected and ordinary. This is a FINAL project…my expectations are high!
    Craftsmanship and creativity are keys to success.
    Go back to your planning throughout process, but don’t be afraid to modify your plans if the piece is not turning out as you had hoped.
  • Requirements:
    Complete 5 full pages in sketchbook
    Complete final piece inspired by an artist, showing the elements and principles and telling a story or having a specific theme
    Complete reflection and one paragraph description of process (this will be provided upon completion of the project)
    You developed the piece on your own and did not rely on teacher to give you ideas or solve problems
  • Expectations & Grading:
    This project should be treated as a final exam:
    your ideas and work should be original
    no part of this assignment can be turned in late - there will be no make-ups, re-dos, or additional time and materials provided
    you will be required to solve problems on your own (not rely on teacher to give you answers)
    if any portion of this project is lost or not submitted by the due date, it will be calculated as a ZERO grade
  • Grading Breakdown:
    This project is worth 20% of your overall grade
    Sketchbook assignment is worth 70 points and 50% of the final project grade
    Final creation/product is worth 40 points and 50% of the final project grade
