afsart: SCPT250 Spring 2010

afsart: SCPT250 Spring 2010
Originally uploaded by afsart

One of the abiding principles of SCPT250 is the 40% principle. This principle reflects the attitude that when you get your object back from the fabrication technician you are at the 40% stage of the sculptural development of your object. One of the ways that we encourage further sculptural exploration of objects created through the milling process is to create molds of the artwork. This accomplishes several things. First, It diminishes the preciousness of computer aided manufactured object. It encourages students to think of digital fabrication as an intermediate process in the exploration of sculpture and it presents the opportunity for further material and process explorations using the computer generated forms.
