Transforming the surface of an object can powerfully change that object’s meaning, allowing the external to suggest an internal state. You will sculpt a very basic life size bust, referencing a model. The transformation and storytelling begins as you cover the head with collected materials, such as natural materials, candy wrappers, cigarette butts, vegetable skins, studio supplies. This workshop is meant to be experimental, a step towards a larger exploration of expressive materials.
