From an email to Mary... Yes, I agree, there is something really interesting about the way you are playing with 2d to 3d and back again. Keep exploring that. I remember a mentor telling me that sculpture and photo have a lot in common. Perhaps, it's that the illusion of space with a photograph and the manipulation of space with a sculpture actually work in similar ways. So many sculptures are experienced through photographs. I always find that interesting. Great job on your final project. Nice photo documentation, too!
Thank you, Carmen! It was great having you in not only one but two classes this semester. I am really pleased and impressed by the student work from this spring. Thanks so much for all of your hard work and contributions.
