Cornell Box Project

An end of the semester final project that allows the student to select one of the 7 plays/musicals discussed in class and create an assemblage/sculpture on the major themes/motifs of the selected play. The assemblage/sculpture is not titled, allowing for the class to see if they can identify the play by looking at the composition of the object. The student is discouraged from creating a defacto scenic design, rather, the purpose is to create a sculptural composition of the play they specifically selected within the “box” they have chosen/designed, as a way to think “outside the box” as it relates to design (pun intended). All objects chosen wants to have some significance. The student is also told to write a one page artist statement that is read at the end of the critique.
