(Collaboration between Simone Muscolino and Jesse Payne)
Encompassing many technical challenges previously encountered throughout the semester, students will be faced with demonstrating what they have learned in this endeavor. Inspired by an image of Charles Eames looking through the eyes of Pablo Picasso, students will be invited to examine and understand the process of viewing the world via another person’s eyes in both art and design. Placing particular importance and interest on examining the context of our school, as well as the mission and vision of the foundation program itself, students will consider the mindset of an architect and designer while operating as an artist. Students will translate their previously acquired skills as well as knowledge of light, shadow, and rendering and mark-making techniques, and grasp how to translate traditional drawings into other mediums, including digital platforms.
