  23. 23. The Moving Figure A creative approach to studying anatomy Coordinated by: Bryn Ludlow, 4th year INTM OCAD student Curator: Teresa Aversa, BFA (Criticism & Curatorial Practice) Supervisor: Dr. Stephen Tulk, MD, Professor of Human Form and Structure: Intro to Anatomy
  24. 24. 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.
  25. 25. 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.
  26. 26. 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:
  27. 27. The effects of _____ on the body as it relates to the specific area of choice: Cancer Workplace stress Cardiovascular Disease Influenza and Pneumonia HIV/ AIDS Alzheimer's Disease Lung Disease Chronic Liver Disease and Cirrhosis Cerebrovascular Diseases A healthy diet Diabetes Mellitus Others: Preventing chronic pain in seniors Income connection to healthcare Medically unexplained physical symptoms Clinical Depression *categories are based on the top 15 Medical conditions of people living in Canada, from Statistics Canada, 2006.
  28. 28. 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.
