Course Description:   Boundaries between mediums and disciplines have become less distinct and more permeable as image makers increasingly turn to sculpture and installation as vehicles for self-expression, and those making three-dimensional work incorporate imagery. This class is a forum for experimentation with contemporary art methods of photography, mixed media sculpture, and installation. The focus will be on the pragmatic aspects of creating interdisciplinary work such as schedules, prioritizing tasks, selecting materials, and problem solving for site-specific locations, as well as employing a fluid work flow between two and three dimensions.

Participants are encouraged to come with ideas for concept-based projects. The instructor’s role is that of facilitator, and Anne Eder brings to it her own interdisciplinary tool-kit including a broad range of artistic and practical skills and experience in both the fine arts arena and the creative workplace. There will be an opportunity for public installation at the end of the semester, location TBA.
