Presentation Transcript

  1. Sculpture and Site Specific Art Understanding 3 Dimensions

  2. Space • This element is what separates 2D from 3D art • Space actually exists in 3D works • 3D space possesses height, width, and depth • Other topics that accompany space • Volume & Mass • Form vs Shape • Negative space

  3. Volume & Mass • Volume • Volume is the space taken up by a solid • You can say a work has volume if it is 3D • Mass • Is a solid that occupies a three-dimensional volume • It must be measured in terms of height, width, and depth • The difference between shape and mass is the difference between a square and a cube

  4. Form & Shape • Form • Is a mass • Cube • Shape • Is 2D… flat • Square

  5. Negative Space • Empty space that acquires a sense of volume and form by means of the outline or frame that surrounds them

  6. Sculpture • 3D art • Two large categories • Subtractive • Take away from the material • Wood, stone, clay, etc… • Additive • Add more and more material • Clay, plaster, wax, etc… • Materials • There are traditional materials such as clay, metal, stone, wood, etc… • However, anything can be a sculptural material… even people

  7. Sculpture Techniques • Carving • Start with a block of material and cut portions away to create final work • Wood, clay, stone, wax, etc…

  8. Sculpture Techniques • Modeling • Shaping material into a 3D form • Can be done by hand or by tools • Clay, wax, etc…

  9. Sculpture Techniques • Casting • Liquid material poured into a mold • Mold making • Metal, wax, resin, plastics, plaster, clay, etc…

  29. Other Techniques/Types of Sculpture • Constructed • Sculpture constructed from materials such as metal, cardboard, wire, etc…

  30. Other Techniques/Types of Sculpture • Assemblage • Typically found objects or other preexisting objects assembled together to create a work of sculpture

  31. Other Techniques/Types of Sculpture • Readymades • Like a found object assemblage, but no assembly required • Marcel Duchamp
