Mind Over Matter? Exploring Making is a three-part class for undergraduate students that fosters your understanding of objects by exploring the processes by which they are made. The interaction of mind, hand, and material is at the heart of what this course is all about. Do we always design & plan objects before making them? Or do forms and things emerge organically? Join BGC PhD students, Geoffrey Ripert and Nicholas De Godoy Lopes, as they take you on a deep dive into the ways that color, rhythm, and shape influence our understanding of objects. Each theme is explored in independent sessions that will involve object studies presented by the session leaders and a BGC faculty member. Participant interaction is strongly encouraged through questions, wider discussion, and an activity concluding each session. From the methodical gestures of the maker to the give-and-take of the material, rhythmic motion has always been at the heart of the making process. This session explores how we can read the rhythms of the creative process within the object itself, whether produced by hand or by machine. With guest speaker Drew Thompson.
