Paper Sculpture Technology

img_0222Instrumentalism– Creating art that’s meant to make people aware of social problems.

The artworks is a 3D paper sculpture meant to make people aware that kids are spending too much time on technology today. It has a kid sitting in a looking at a computer. The room also has a trash can stuffed with food such as Cheetos. Through the window you can see another kid running outside and playing soccer. Kids and adults need to go outside more. I used form to build the computer and chair more realistically. The artwork uses emphasis as the words pop out at the viewers. The meaning of the artwork is for people to think about how much time do they spend on technology. Hopefully, viewers will take this chance to go outside and loosen their body up a bit. There are many benefits to being active and my artwork is to help inspire them. The artwork was a big success for me. It turned out better than I though and I could get a lot done. Building the computer and chair was hard, but everything looks like what they are.





img_0161The Shadowbox depicts the scene when Harry Potter fights Voldemort. The background is the Hogwarts school with the 4 houses on top. The middle shows a crowd of students cheering Harry on as he fights. The front layer is both Voldemort and Harry Potter with their wands out. I used Form to build layers to make the scene 3D. I used a lot of shapes to make the Hogwarts building. The shadowbox put emphasis on the front layer as it pops out the most to viewers. The meaning of the artwork was to make the scene alive with paper. Even for people who don’t know Harry Potter they can understand more with the elements out in the shadowbox. I think the artwork was a great and it depicts the scene successfully because the artwork is recognizable through the small cuts. It looks good on the front, but the back could have been glued down more neatly.
