Skill Level: Open to all

Concept: We explore our interconnected world in this workshop through making sculptures and installation art. We investigate avenues of connectivity between art, science, history and society as a whole. Flexibility and holistic concepts are nurtured in learning contemporary methods of mold making and casting resin. “The Web of Life” by Fritjof Capra is our reference book for core concepts, as we produce at least two projects over the course of this week.

Media & Techniques: Skin wax, hydrogel and plaster as mold making materials. Silicone, Aqua, nontoxic resin and polyurethane rubber as casting mediums.

Activities: Demonstrations of rubber mold making, experiments, brainstorming and the execution of ideas.

Faculty: Yuriko Yamaguchi’s works are in numerous museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in Kanagawa, Japan, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She has received various awards, including the American Academy of Arts and Letters award, a Joan Mitchell Foundation award and fellowships from the NEA and the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center.
