This course will focus on developing ideas, building models, hands on creation of installations, seminars looking at at various approaches by artists historically and contemporary. as well as shorter workshops with introductions to various materials. Students will be encouraged to make site-specific and temporary installations that utilize locally purchased and found objects to explore both linear and non-linear narrative structures.
