Art Teacher Pam Sutherland writes:
“In this third project of the semester, students continue to use recycled and scavenged materials to create an “animal” of their choice. The only traditional material was taxidermy foam used as a base. An added goal in this project was to consider how to contextualize their animal by creating some sort of environment on the wall itself. These site-specific installations are intended to transform an otherwise benign and overlooked space, while allowing students to grapple with the interdependence of two- and three-dimensionality that defines sculpture today."
