Sculptural Book Final Sculptural Book Final Presentation Transcript

  • 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… 1. be inspired by a book artist 2. Highlight at least 3 of the elements and principles of art/design 3. 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 Olafur Eliasson 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: 1. Research Book Artists and choose ONE that you will use as influence for your own sculptural book. 2. Complete sketchbook packet. See handout for more details and directions. a. Bio on the artist you are influenced by b. Images of artwork you are using as inspiration AND from the artist you have chosen c. YOUR OWN idea development, influence and thumbnail sketches – include elements and principles and story or theme d. FIVE detailed drawings that illustrate your final piece
  • What You’ll Do: 3. Meet with teacher to review research and discuss ideas and plans. 4. Using materials you have planned, inspiration from the artist, and your sketches and notes, create your own book sculpture. 5. 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 final reflection sheet  Develop the piece on your own and do 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 sculptural book is worth 53 points and 40% of the final project grade  Final reflection is worth 26 points and 10% of the final project grade
