NO MATTER by Scott
Kildall and Victoria Scott
February 9, 1-5 pm
Venue: Bill Bordy Theater, 216 Tremont Street [MAP: select #2, 216 Tremont Street], Emerson College, Boston, Massachusetts.
In this 4-hour workshop, artists Scott Kildall and Victoria Scott will assist participants in building miniature paper models of famous imaginary and fictional objects, such as Kryptonite, the Flying Carpet and The Widget. The first section will be an overview of the processes they used to create their project No Matter. They’ll discuss how they commissioned Second Life builders to make 40 of these imaginary objects and demonstrate how they extracted and transformed these 3D models from Second Life into real 3D paper sculptures. In the second section participants will be instructed in the actual construction of the paper-craft 3D. Attendees will be paid for their labor in equivalent paper Linden Dollars.
Limited to 12 people. Persons over 16 with intermediate to advanced skills
with cutting, gluing or sculpture.
