Professor Borders is my Sculpture 1 professor at UIW. He’s from Louisiana, loves good food and has an epic beard. I was impressed with how clean and orderly the studio was when I first walked in. This guy’s attention to detail is renowned.
Things he said:
- Attend all classes – don’t be late.
- We are searching for a truth.
- Erase all visual static.
- Excuses are for weak individuals.
- If you work in shit you create shit.
He likes quotes. We are expected to have a meaningful quote at every class. We’ll do 2 projects in his class – a foam one and a wood one. The foam will be subtractive. The wood will additive. We’ll provide the materials and a box to keep and transport it in.
The works will be based upon or similar to the work of Henry Moore and Hans Arp.
