The Moving Figure
A creative approach to studying anatomy
Bryn Ludlow, 4th year INTM OCAD student
Teresa Aversa, BFA (Criticism & Curatorial Practice)
Dr. Stephen Tulk, MD, Professor of Human Form and Structure: Intro to Anatomy
This is an open call to the students of SCTM 2B02 to participate in
an anatomical arts competition, focusing on the understanding of
movement at a specific joint.
PRESENTATION OPTION I: CREATIVE EXPLORATION
Examine the figure literally in the studio or as a point of departure for a piece of art,
and use your understanding of anatomy as the underlying theme. Anatomic elements
can be used as design elements, symbols, etc. All types of media are acceptable for
final presentations, from traditional media such as print making, to computer
rendering and animation. Experiment with creative exploration of the figure showing
exaggerated features, muscle tone
and / or anthropomorphism.
PRESENTATION OPTION II: PATIENT EDUCATION TOOL
Research a specific subject area to illustrate in your figure studies with the aim of
using the final presentation as a creative patient education tool. The following are
some examples of potential research themes:
The effects of _____ on the body as it relates to the specific area of choice:
Influenza and Pneumonia
Chronic Liver Disease and Cirrhosis
A healthy diet
Preventing chronic pain in seniors
Income connection to healthcare
Medically unexplained physical symptoms
*categories are based on the top 15 Medical conditions of people living in Canada, from Statistics Canada, 2006.
PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES
This is a rare opportunity for students to work beyond the course, studying specific
areas of the human body, showing movement at a joint from a live model,
participating in an artistic and academic competition at the University-level, and
creating professional presentations for your portfolio.
