Site-specific Sculpture – Assistant Professor Rob Greene & Students

_Vineyard_Art club group shot Dec 10 16 _Vineyard_Ephemeral close shot Finished 150 _Vineyard_vine rhythm 150 Ephemeral far shot finishedEphemeral is a Site-specific sculpture created by Assistant Professor of Sculpture, Rob Greene & students during early December 2016. The work is composed and constructed of materials found on the vineyard grounds — cedar, grape tree roots and the trimmings from the grape vines themselves. Ephemeral is a female form suspended across a series of rows spanning approximate 30 feet and easily seen by the public.

Greene has been thinking about this installation for several years after visiting the vineyard. He imagined the beauty of a large-scale sculpture suspended across the very rows of grape vines from which it is composed. The title Ephemeral suggests that it is impermanent and will break down and eventually disappear much like other out door installations he has done. The creation and disintegration of the piece will be documented from beginning to end using video and time lapsed photography. Eventually it will become a short film.

Students from Eastern’s Visual Arts Club — Hunter Gillen, Amber Dickinson, Adam Courbin, Rachel Waters, Nicole Lenares, Brooke Fulcher and Bella Zira— and Adjunct Professor of Printmaking, Allison Conley, graciously offered to assist with this project. They braved cold weather to come to the vineyard on Saturday, December 10th. With their help, the piece was three quarters complete by the end of the day.

Yard Sign Installation

ART 122 • DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION AND PAGE LAYOUT

Professor Jane Rainwater

“Yard signs are as ubiquitous and familiar to the American political landscape as baby-kissing and stump speeches, combining catchy images and pithy campaign slogans to increase visibility for vying candidates and their parties’ messages. In honor of this election season, we will turn this tradition of political ephemera on its ear with a unique project; we’re putting the message and the creative design for these political yard signs in the hands of artists and then—in true democratic fashion.” The class voted among the entries to determine a selection of five winners whose designs are shown here on the ECSU Campus.
