Art 13, 3D Concepts

 3D Concepts Final Project

"What the Twister Did."
This assignment was the invention of my friend and former professor, Elizabeth King, who assigned it many years ago, after reading a story of the same name in a 1984 issue of The New Yorker.

I tried out the assignment in my 3D Concepts class this semester.

Tables Fall 2014!

We need a second light kit desperately! Every year these pictures are so dimly lit! Half the students had more exams right after ours and couldn't stay for the photo shoot.

Art 198, BFA Seminar, Fall 2013

In the BFA Seminar we did a project for Parking Day San Jose. Parking Day is an international phenomenon which aims to "take back the commons," turning parking spaces into mini parks. We brainstormed and came up with a plan, and the students formed teams for fabrication and documentation of the project.  Here is the fun video documentary the Art 198 students made:
