Sculptures Become Spaces

Collaboration Sculpture:Dance Improvisation

Sculpture and dance share concepts of space, movement, line, gravity, structure and form. Both have the powerful ability to inspire emotions and capture ephemeral feelings, giving us access to a range of experiences. It is easy to forget or ignore that every aspect of our days are filled navigating spaces and objects that are designed by others. For this project, sculpture students researched and chose examples of architecture that sparked their curiosity. In the studio, students used those examples to guide the thinking and design process. The resulting sculptures play with line in space to create shadows. Jessica Ziegler used language from the sculpture students’ artist statements to create a movement score to be performed at the gallery opening. The dancers will improvise using specific words and their constructed meaning to help guide this structured improvisation.IMG_4857IMG_2658
