PLAYING WITH WORDS

October 24, 2012

A Dutch artist Sjors Vervoort has been making animation art with pieces of folded and painted paper, as well as cardboard. His work was inspiration for students to create their own videos using their constructed cardboard words.

The students were given the opportunity to create a similar project. The assignment: to build a 3 Dimensional word in a small student group. The word will be 28 inches by 3 inches, made of cardboard and plaster strips. The second challenge was to place the word in an environment and create a video, animation or photo montage. The high school students and the media students at RTCC collaborated to work on the animation and video process. The results are wonderful!

The word COLOR was a simple but creative reference in the art room as the video illustrates.

Another group of students experimented with the letters H2O.

Collaborative thought, creativity, and technology produce imaginative results!
