OBJT 103 Body As Form

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

This studio course considers the body as a three-dimensional form reflecting the broad array
of human expression. The course is dedicated to a study of the physical body and the expressive
body, respectively. The physical body examines the figure from an anatomical perspective and its
structural qualities, such as the skeleton, musculature, proportions and mechanics. Students
also examine various artistic canons, both western and non-western. The expressive body
addresses the figure as a signifier of the human condition. Students explore its visual presence
or absence, reconsider the mind-body question, and contemplate or situate the body in space.
Projects incorporate movement, gesture and posture. Various modes of making will be
explored, using a range of materials.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
