Master Class: Ma-terial, The Poetics of Hidden Space | 5.27
The world is an endless supply of materials and objects. Within the methods of creating, our hands make connections with materials as our minds wander around the various spaces surrounding the objects. As the mind meanders through this space, our thoughts dwell in emptiness, within which imagination can run free. This workshop will focus on imaginative and innovative approaches to conceiving and working with concepts of Ma. Through processes with specific materials, we will reflect on the spatial concepts of Ma and its relation to 'space'. In addition, the workshop will examine the aesthetic practice of Ma across western and eastern tradition. The aim for this workshop is to develop new perceptions through the sensory experiences and technical abilities in contemporary jewelry practice. Prerequisite: none Supply fee: $15 *Master class students will have the option of participating in an additional complimentary session on Monday; details will be sent upon registration.* There will be a master artist lecture with Sayumi Yokouchi on Friday, May 27, at 6 pm, in the Youth Room at Pratt.
