More Than Meets the Eye: Art Class Thinks Outside the Box

If you were out walking on campus and passed a gazebo with a robot sitting on a bench, chances are you’d stop and take a closer look.

That’s the idea Britt Stadig’s Three Dimensional Design class was going for when they created their site-specific installations around campus this week. Students had to create pieces that played with texture and space. We don’t always notice our surroundings but when things like robots, giant pumpkins, candy-coated computer accessories, and 3-D extensions of our everyday surroundings catch our eye, we’ll take a second look.

“If someone sees something unusual outside they’re more likely to look and once they see the unusual thing they’re going to see what’s around it and take in more of their surroundings,” art student Shannon Mazza said.
