Art 222: sculpture

Ah yes! It's the start of a new term at UVic. I'm taking a sculpture class again, this time with Megan Dickie, one of my favourite artists :) She did the Canada Council Logo as punching bag a few years ago.
Our first assignment is to create a collapsible (or modular) structure/form for________. I've been thinking about doing a piece using light since the end of last term so I'm going to make a piece about illuminating a space (but not tied to a specific space or size, hence the collapsible aspect of the assignment).
Some example of other artists using the idea of collapsible form are:
Marcel Duchamp
Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes

Brian Jungen, modular
