FND236C Design Studio II - Anatomy and Space

[3–6, 6 cr.]

This studio investigates the fundamentals of perception and representation in the exploration of the human figure in its relation to space. Exercises focus on understanding anatomy and the synergy of the human body’s movement in space. The studio develops students’ skills in encoding information in two- and three- dimensional studies, while exploring the theoretical aspects of signification as it relates to the various manifestations of the human body. The studio outcome will show a mature understanding of the human body in its multifarious conditions, requiring students to visualize the poetic potential of its transformations through prosthetic extensions.
