Sculptural Kaleidoscopes: Art Social No.5

  • Henry Moore Institute
  • Wednesday, 23 March 2022
  • Teachers CPD event, 5 - 6:30pm. Experiment with sculpture, light, video and found materials to create sensory installations.

Experiment with sculpture, light, video and found materials to create sensory installations.

Inspired by the qualities of the glass sculptures showcased in our current exhibition, A State of Matter: Modern and Contemporary Glass Sculpture, you’ll work with Leeds Arts University student Caroline Orrell who is exploring ‘cultural kaleidoscopes’ through her final year project, and the Henry Moore Institute’s Engagement Curator and artist Alison Smith, maker of immersive light installations. We’ll use a darkened room filled with torches and projectors, make miniature mirrored sculptures and play with found materials which reflect and distort light.

Through this fun, informal session we’ll focus on process, research and development and collaboration to create playful experiments that can be easily recreated in the classroom, enabling pupils of all key stages to explore and create immersive, multi-sensory installations.
