Description: This studio course introduces students to animating sculpture, including the contributions of Indigenous and culturally diverse artistic practitioners in the field. Students explore various techniques such as moving joints, gear, chain, and pulley systems, and motion converters, leading to more complex assemblies in animating static form. Students develop fundamental skills in reading and drawing blueprints and measuring and marking techniques for application in metal, wood, mouldmaking, and other applicable materials. All course content is considered through a decolonial lens.
