Human Scale Class Creates Sculpture in the CID

After months of work, students in Matt Martino’s Human Scale class have completed their collaborative sculpture project which is now on display in the Center for Innovation & Design (CID). The sculpture, titled “Inclement Weather,” is an expression of the MBS Core Value of Tenacity, and represents student life, challenges, and the relationships we build along the way.

This year, the Human Scale class studied several forms of sculpture in connection to these questions: 

·      How can materials be symbolically connected to meaning or interpretation of Art. 

·      How does the incorporation of human posture or gestures, literal or abstract, relate to the interpretation of sculpture?

·      How can sculpture interact with the architecture around it?  

After analyzing case studies that relate to these concepts, students were tasked with the challenge to design and build a full scale in-situ sculpture. As part of the process, they collaborated with Jeanine Erickson’s Jewelry Design students, whose hands were cast in plaster and added to the sculpture. 

The Human Scale students who created the piece were: Brian Covey ’25, Jamie Miller ’24, Alex Pelinsky ’24, and Will Spencer ’25.  The Middle School students who contributed to the piece included: Meadow Fleming ’29, Aurora Lattarulo ’30, Alex Mazur ’30, Dylan Neuer ’29, Abigail Resnick ’30, and Avery Spells ’30.
