In Ms. Paris’ sculpture class, students recently worked in groups to choose a location to create a site specific installation. Installations are typically indoor sculptures, while outdoor sculptures are often referred to as public art.
Students used the figure as their subject and incorporated an additional object made of tape that relates to the figure’s action. Some students chose to add additional objects beyond tape. They used each other as the mold and cast tape sculptures from their peers. Some sculptures are all cast from one person, while others are a combination of multiple group members.
Each of the sculptures “interacts” with the space around it, changing the viewer’s perception of the space. Site specific artwork is created to exist in a certain place. Typically, the artist takes the location into account while planning and creating the artwork.
