This course merges two-dimensional imagery and three-dimensional forms. Students will be invited to transform old works on paper into sculptures. Paper will be studied as a material with unique abilities to both hold information on its surface and be sculpted into an object. We will examine when a line in space can also present itself as a drawing, how an object can be both an image and a sculpture, and how the flexible nature of paper can lend itself to working site-specifically.
