Claus Oldenburg, 1961
|Miniature Soft Drum Set, by Oldenberg|
In order to "teach" sculpture, Art Ranger's must stir up and bake her own manifesto constantly. She begins by launching into a riff on "man the tool builder", as a primary step in human evolution contributing toward the creation of a myriad of three-dimensional objects. Then wondering where utility branches into "art", and where art can still "function" in daily life.
Chimp Sticks (as opposed to chopsticks) used to forage termites, etc.
|(with skill and determination)|
This moment of invention, of animal inspiration, having some thread in common with the human art making urge. Can you make this leap of faith with us ?
