Cardboard Sculpture

Josef and I made a cardboard arcade. (Pictures below)

Josef was actually the one who thought of making an old-fashioned arcade, but I thought it was pretty cool. So we sketched something out and started to cut the box. We made the game Tetris in the arcade instead of pac-man, since pac-man would’ve taken too long. We also wrote “Hi-Score!” instead of “High-Score” because we were rushing. We also added icons of pac-man, Tetris, and Space Invaders so you can change the No major changes.

Working with glue made everything a lot easier since we didn’t have to look for ways to attach the pieces. This restriction was definitely a hindrance to achieving our goals.

I think that Josef and I worked pretty well together. We never had any disagreements about the sculpture or anything really. I think we could have talked about what we were going to do more because at first, I was kind of confused about what we were going to do.

Sarah Sze: “Improvisation” Research

Sarah Sze’s Video


Triple Point (Observatory), 2013

       She wants her work to be something that experiences something alive. You can tell that the decisions happening on sight. The spontaneousness of the art is what makes it interesting for the artist and for the viewer. She takes a lot of time conceptualising and thinking over her work. So us as viewers never have an idea of what is going to happen until it happens and that is what makes it interesting.

Josef and I’s art project was similar to Sarah’s process because we never really knew what we would do next. The idea just kind of came to our mind and we made our sculpture on the spot.

I personally think Sarah’s work is awesome. I love her concept of just doing things as you think of them. I would definitely call Sarah’s work art.
