Discover the Colors of the Planets

School Groups
Middle School

Do you know how many planets are in the solar system? And did you know that Earth is blue, Mars is red, and Venus is brilliant white and yellow? We will craft our own celestial bodies, taking inspiration from artist Hale Tenger's installation of spherical objects that remind of the vacuum of space. We will create the unique colors and round shapes of planets in space on a two-dimensional plane using cardboard, aluminum foil and various colors of paint.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.

The man is depicted in three-quarters view, turning straight to the viewers with a penetrating glance. The background is grey, while the clothes, the hair, and cap are black.

It can be seen how Goya gradually and constantly investigated all the technical possibilities of creative engraving from etching to lithography.
