About the Event
GEOMETRY OF THE HUMAN BODY PROJECT
It's one of the blessings of being human that we all come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. We can never be bored with each other! Watching people pass by is very entertaining in a good sense. People do it all the time when they are seated in the outdoor cafes. Fashion designers and clothing manufacturers pay very close attention to how people are shaped.
Naturally, women especially find themselves in many geometrical forms. Some are shaped as rectangles, triangles, squares, and circles. The circles sometimes are referred to as apple and pear shapes when viewed in 3D. Many artists from Rubens to Picasso, to Botero, marveled at and celebrated a variety of human forms. From cave paintings to Renaissance, the human form is the main subject of art! When dealing with a highly stylized human figure one must always remember that the DNA itself has only 4 different units called nitrogen bases. Out of this limited number stems not only the variety of the human form but a diversity of all lifeforms, uncounted billions upon billions of individuals of humans, animals, and plants! Just think about it for a moment.
This project will allow you to compose human form out of geometrical pieces of paper. In all glorious multitude, every character you create will be instantly recognized as a fellow human!
Family Art Days offer the community free, imaginative projects for children with their family members.
Inspired by SJIMA’s Fall exhibitions on the human figure September 24 - December 6, Family Art Days (FAD) art pact pick-ups are on Saturdays beginning October 2 - December 18.
