OBJT 212 Structures

College of Art, Media & Design

3 credits 67.5 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Structures addresses pragmatic engineering and theoretical concepts as they relate to art, design and film. Using digital and manual techniques, students will investigate how to make a physical structure stand in space, how an underlying support works as a system of parts, and how structures can construct conceptual space. The course will challenge students to expand their existing notions and envision structure as shelter, routine, skin, pattern, support, surface and time. Students will work individually and collaboratively to produce projects ranging from structures that address everyday human need, to structures that transform physical and conceptual space, to structures designed to create meaning for experimental installations which may incorporate photography, film and a variety of other time-based media.
