Artists are culture makers.
We creatively interpret our surroundings based on our unique backgrounds and perspectives.
For this project, we will focus on this point by creating an object that responds to a story published by a major news outlet. After selecting a news article of your choice, you will then make a work of art that responds to the ideas presented in it.
Your work will need to creatively interact with the theme of your article – responding, answering, or challenging the tenets put forth by the author. This project can be completed on the potters wheel or with handbuilding techniques.
Your object may solve a problem posed by your article, or it may create a new one, but it must be made in response to the theme of the news story.
