Project proposal

I propose to conduct several workshops to demonstrate how to sculpt a head from a cube of clay. I use medical charts to demonstrate how it is important to sculpt what you see, not what you THINK you see. After participants are comfortable locating features on the face, they will learn to add "the intelligence". Participants will be asked to sculpt a self-portrait or the head of a family member, neighbor or favorite character from a fable or fairy tale. Then we will sit in a circle and each participant will write down the title of their work. Then each person will pass their work to the right and the next person will write what they think a good title would be for the work. Each work will be passed to the right until everyone has written down a title for each work offered. Then each will share their titles for each work and explain their reasoning. This will help particioants learn how important a title can be in communicating an idea and generate a diverse spectrum of responses.

Contributions to Yingge local community

I will conduct a series of workshops to educate participants to sculpt a human head and by just changing a few gestures, show how one can communicate a spectrum of emotions. I will encourage participants to sculpt a self-portrait or a portrait of a family member exaggerating a chosen feature, or maybe writing script of their favorite poem all over the head. All the heads, which will undoubtedly range in scale, color and intention, will be gahtered together at the end of the residency to be installed as a crowd exhibition.
