Tomorrow is our "Day without Shoes!"

S.J. is raising awareness for "One Day without Shoes" during tomorrow's assembly.

Here is more information on the event:

Subtractive Sculpture

Sculpture: Modeling, Carving or Found Object.

"Modeling is additive: as it follows the logic of assembly, it accumulates substance toward achievement.

Carving, as a subtractive process, is the opposite of modeling. The effects of carving can be seen whenever meaning is created by stripping something away, or where a new form takes shape by means of removal. The subtractive (reductive) method we associate with carving can be a tool for creative destruction or a means of refinement and intensification.

The most famous description of the reductive process is Michelangelo’s image of a figure trapped inside of a block of stone. He also explained that he carved as if he were witnessing the revelation of a submerged object."

Sometimes it takes a while to find your voice!


A short film by Siri Melchior
The film was made using thousands of Potato Prints which were then scanned in and used as textures for the animation.
The film was a co-production between Trunk Animation in London and Dansk Tegnefilm in Denmark.
