And Merce Cunningham
I've always wanted to make outfits where someone is forced to be moving awkwardly connected to a 2x4 or a strange constructed architecture. To me this is a good project to do for green sculpture as a way to bring up our immediate physical relationship to our surroundings, as thinking about it more could be beneficial.
Now that I am refreshed on crocheting thanks to Zach’s wife’s presentation in class, I’m thinking of this as a way to process materials. I made a small piece after that workshop and I like the way the knots look as a drawing.
I was thinking I could make a tapestry from plastic sort of in the fashion of Anni Albers...
I use building materials a lot in my studio. In seeing Sara’s trash Island project and how they used trash as a building material, I’m thinking I could also use this elective to build building materials out of debris that I could use in the future in my studio.
These are some of the ideas I have. I’ll talk to you guys Monday.
Also, here's an interesting thing that is going on: LEED. This program deals with the effective use of materials in architecture and design.
