This course fuses the digital to the real world. Making sculptures that range from small-scale objects to both proposed and realized installations, students will utilize 21st-century means of drawing at the intersection of the Parsons Making Center. Through Computer Aided Drawing (CAD), rendering, rapid prototyping, and a headfirst dive into the E4 metal shop, students will make their way through their concepts while exploring a range of artists and practitioners who employ similar literacies. This course will examine the work of Baseera Khan, Grace Lee Lawrence, David Howe, Jonathan Brand, David Hammonds, The Ben Keating Foundry, Maker Space NYC, as well as many others.
