Sculpture workshops are critique-based studio courses that investigate interdisciplinary topics proposed by faculty based on their fieldwork, experience, and expertise. Emphasis is on developing each student's individualized research and expanding their studio practice to consider broader concerns, methods, and contexts.This workshop will focus on expansive sculptural creation with a concentration on sustainability, ecological considerations and resource extraction. Through the harvesting of natural materials and the scavenging of discarded recyclables, students will create site specific works that explore themes relating to extinction, environmental collapse, the poetics of synthetic materials and The Anthropocene era. Students will have the opportunity to create site specific installations in a multitude of locations in The Bay Area including superfund sites, recycling depots, botanical gardens and majestic wild spaces.  There will be guest speakers including artists whose practice has an ecological focus, botanists, activists, climate scientists and members of Indigenous tribes whose ancestral lands are being destroyed. This class counts towards an Ecological Practices minor.
