Collaboration With Visual Arts Students
This past Monday (3/10/14) ArtScience did a rapid design activity with some of the Visual Art students here at Perpich. In this activity, each ArtScience student was paired up with 1-2 vis kids. We explained our ideas to the students and they had to come up with ways to improve it. After they came up with the idea, they had to construct it in 10 minutes. We consulted with them our ideas and this activity was great in expanding our imagination and big thinking for our project. A few ideas we had thrown at us included a "Plant Tour Bus" in which our project would tour the country by bus to be shown to the public, as well as a "Petal Design" in which our entire piece would look like a flower, the petals would be able to fold up to protect our installation from damage. We loved working with our creative peers on this activity and are taking the ideas into consideration.
