Sculpture II: Symbiotic Sculptures

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-324


Lucia Monge (Section 01)


Symbiosis is a close biological interaction between living organisms. It can be temporary or permanent; positive, neutral, or parasitic; and involve two or thousands of individuals. In this class we will explore a variety of relationships with and within nature through sculpture. Conceptual prompts will be accompanied by material experimentation with “biomaterials”: materials that are grown, cooked, or processed through collaborations with fungi, plants, and bacteria.

Requisite: ARHA 214 or consent of the instructor. Limited to 12 students. Spring semester 2024. Professor Monge.

How to handle overenrollment: Priority given to ARHA and Architectural Studies majors. Others will be admitted to balance year, major, and Five College participation.

Students who enroll in this course will likely encounter and be expected to engage in the following intellectual skills, modes of learning, and assessment: Studio art projects, class discussions, individual research and collaborative learning.
