Student 1, 3-D Design: Selected Works (Quality)

Score (on a 6-point scale)

6

Rationale for Score

In this section:

  • A highly successful use of line, volume, repetition, occupied/unoccupied space, texture, color/light is addressed in these formal and conceptual structures.
  • All five works exhibit excellent, well-informed decision making and intention.
  • The composition of the works (images 3, 4, and 5) is original, imaginative, and inventive.
  • The work shows successful engagement with experimentation and/or risk taking in most pieces (images 3, 4, and 5).
  • The work as a whole is confident and evocative. It engages the viewer with visual qualities of expressive verve (images 3, 4, and 5) and nuanced subtlety (images 1, 2, 3, and 4).
  • Technical competence is excellent. Easily obtainable materials—classroom chairs, baseball bat, wooden sticks, thread, zipper, plaster gauze—are used expressively, and all works are constructed with precision and excellent craftsmanship.
  • Appropriated materials such as classroom chairs, circular saw blade, and an old baseball bat are clearly transformed in the service of a larger personal vision.
