FAS236 Body in Fashion

[2–2, 3 cr.]

This studio is a combination of theoretical lectures on the various manifestations of the human body throughout the contemporary period, as well as applied exercises that investigate the perception and representation of the human body and its cultural dimension. The studio will focus on developing students’ skills in representing the anatomical aspects of the human subject in two- and three- dimensional studies, while continuing the creative investigation of translating ideas into forms, and specifically forms that apply to the human body in its movement through space. Basic concepts such as proportion, materiality, texture, fabric and color will be explored in the process of devising specific outfits in response to conceptual ideas.

Co-Requisite: FND237 Visual Dynamics
