ACT 2nd Semester 2016-17 Undergraduate Art Exhibition: Sculpture and 3D Design

 

Art and Creative Technology 2nd Semester 2016-17 Undergraduate Art Exhibition: Sculpture and 3D Design is the 5th ACT student art exhibition hosted at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) Teaching Gallery, 1st floor of FASS Building. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Martie Geiger-Ho, ACT senior lecturer, and showcases the outstanding artworks created by 50 students enrolled in AR-2204 Sculpture and 3D Design.

The content of this undergraduate art exhibition is related to one assignment designed for this module. In the Sculptural Signs assignment, students are required to design a handmade sign that displays typography and place names that related to the region of Brunei Darussalam. The life-size signage showcases images integrated into the 2D and 3D elements of a real sign. The signage concept highlights Brunei's culture and creativity.

Most student life-size signage reveals their understanding of public space and 3D sculpture combined with an appreciation of their own culture. The sculptures show a deep understanding of the repurposed/recycled materials, typography, and 3D thinking involved with constructing and finishing wooden signage.

Art and Creative Technology 2nd Semester 2016-17 Undergraduate Art Exhibition: Sculpture and 3D Design takes advantage of FASS's Teaching Gallery space to display student's visions of culture and expression through their exploration of different materials, to include driftwood. Each artwork represents an encapsulated focus on either a cultural issue or a well referenced intellectual concern about creativity and art in society.

These free-standing and wall mounted works of art are also important decorative objects that could be produced as part of Brunei's creative industries because they can either serve as pure art objects with popular motifs, or they can be created as actual commissioned signs for real establishments.
