2nd Sculpture Assignment

"Only For You – A Structure that Fits the Body

For your final assignment you will create a structure that fits all or a portion of your body. The structure is to be made out of wood and may incorporate one other material. The structure is expected to be free standing or use the body as an element of support. Focus should be placed on the craftsmanship of the structure, particularly how the wood is joined together and finished.

The intent of this assignment is to understand the relationship between sculpture and the human form; changing everyday perceptions of how the body moves through and understands space. Think about your materials, process and structure: how do they convey meaning to the viewer? As well as how do you elicit interaction?"

Hmm . . . where to start?
