Teaching Assistant to Art on Location, Sculpture Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, January - May 2012
During the spring semester 2012 I worked as the TA to the Sculpture Department for the Art on Location:Materials Lab. The course focuses on hands-on material experimentation in close relationship with the SURPLUS materials exchange resource and the developing Materials Library, as well as with other resources on and off campus. The course explores processes of reclamation, transformation and re-combination as we work towards expanding our understanding of qualities and potentialities of both traditional and innovative sculptural substances. Through individual investigations combined with in-class workshops and demonstrations we will build upon personal research to develop a collective body of material knowledge.
