THE RENAISSANCE...EXPLORE AND BE INSPIRED!
Inspired by architecture, art, objects or ideas from the renaissance
you get an assignment to design and make a physical object in your
chosen technique and all available materials. You may combine
traditional materials and methods with the most modern way of
producing objects in 3D. After the object is finished you must
photograph it, design a poster with the object displayed and a text
that explains the ideas and philosophy behind it. The text must
answer the question;
“How is this object relevant to the renaissance?”
You can work alone or in groups of up to three people.
Research the period of the renaissance for possible concepts you can
have as a starting point. Brainstorm ideas for what you can make.
Sketch with pencil/paper, clay, paper cuttings, textiles, software…
