NEW! ADVANCED INSTALLATION ART
Instructor: Peter Pereira
Peter G. Pereira, creator of the Trees of Life Sculpture and Multimedia Installation Series will introduce you to advanced study of this groundbreaking and exciting course: Installation Art. This course will delve into the art of installation as a deeper, more focused, more transitory narration: translating our (2D and 3D) indoor models of installation art to outdoor sites (4D). We will plan and site an indoor installation themed around a poem or song, for example, made up of elements of your objects, art or ideas. The challenge and excitement comes as we think of translating indoor to outdoor, where we welcome new interactive elements and spaces – nature’s flora/ fauna, scale, changing sunlight and shade, interactivity/people, season and time (among the honking horns, the accidental thunderstorm, etc.) This stretches us creatively in fun and profound ways!
Are you a writer/poet, musician, painter, sculptor, photographer, movie-maker, dancer, gymnast, engineer, astronomer, chef, or some combination? This inclusive course explores installation art in all media and will incorporate your media including photographs, paintings, drawings, video, sound and sculptural materials in the exciting field of mixed and multimedia installation works. So bring one along to class!
The weeks of creating installations will also include planning out and basic site exploration of your chosen object(s), the indoor installations, dimensions, scale, indoor/outdoor facets of our work including materials, ecology/impact, carbon footprint, construction, budgeting and multimedia. We will also introduce techniques for documenting the process, which will make the project a film in the making! Join us for this multi-dimensional journey!
