Fall 2019 Topic:  Kinetic Sculpture

(no pre-requisite required)

wishbone sculpture
 

Explore the intersection between arts and engineering by creating mechanical sculptures. This course will investigate how the incorporation of movement into sculpture adds another level of expression. Projects will focus on a variety of materials and techniques including wood, metal, assemblage, and 3D printing. Students will be introduced to the basics of electrical circuits, simple mechanisms, and the utilization of small motors. These hands-on investigations will be contextualized through the study of both historical and contemporary examples of kinetic sculpture. Additionally, students will document their work through videos.

This course will be jointly taught by a professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a professor of Visual Arts. Collaboration between arts and engineering students will be encouraged. The course fee will provide students with some of the required materials. Students will need to purchase additional materials.

Rome: what started as a handful of huts overlooking the Tiber River would grow into a vast empire spanning the Mediterranean Sea. Roman society would create vibrant and complex works of art and architecture that drew inspiration from the variety of ancient cultures it encompassed. Starting in the 9th century BCE and ending with Constantine, the first Christian emperor in the 4th century CE, this course will survey the artistic and architectural achievements of ancient Rome. We will examine public and domestic architecture, as well as funerary art, painting, portraiture and sculpture in their ancient and modern contexts. Our aim is to understand the development of Roman culture and consider its legacy in the modern world. Prereq: one 400- or 500-level art history course. Writing intensive.

Topic for Fall 2019: Problem Pictures of the Early Modern Period

What kinds of puzzles are most intransigent when we examine paintings that are 500 years old?  Some of the lingering issues have to do with attribution and authenticity, others with interpretation and significance, still others with use. We will look at how some of the best art historical minds have tried to define and to resolve knotty problems about Renaissance objects (potentially sculpture, buildings, prints, decorative arts, and ephemera as well as paintings, both moveable and fixed).  Pre-req: Arts 480 Intro Art History or permission of Prof. Emison
