The students’ art installations show the tactile exploration of forms and environments along with expressions of time, light, and space in 3-D visualizations.

Students taking a 3-D art course this semester at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo have produced a variety of works for their final projects using diverse materials such as metal, plastic, and string. In some cases, the student’s own body is part of the installation.
For the class (ART 124), taught by Professor of Art Michael Marshall, the students investigated the principles and elements of design in three-dimensional concepts. The course is one of the choices for art majors to fulfill their Foundation Studio Program requirements, although students majoring in other fields can take the class (see computer science major Kayla Smallwood‘s art work below).
The final projects creatively reflect the goals of the course:
- Investigation of the principles and elements of design in three-dimensional concepts.
- Tactile exploration of forms, environments, and expressions.
- Explorations into perceptual relationships of time, light, and space in three-dimensional visualizations.
