What’s bugging this Campus?
The Department of Creative and Festival Arts recently exhibited the work of students of the Three Dimensional Design Class of the Visual Arts programme. Students and lecturers alike were bug-eyed at the sight of the papier maché insects artfully placed in trees, bushes, and alongside buildings in realistic positions on the St Augustine Campus of The UWI.
The Arthropod project challenged the first-year students to make observations of the natural world and choose a range of materials—wire, paper and card, adhesives, paints and miscellaneous found objects—to achieve an exhibit of enlarged replicas of some of the planet’s fascinating creatures.
