String Patterns

School Groups
Middle School

Do clouds in the sky or waves on the sea have a particular shape? Although they do not, we still recognize them by their colors and patterns. Taking inspiration from Etel Adnan’s paintings of seasons, landscapes, signs, imaginary planets and moons in the sky, we create abstract patterns using strings, glue and watercolors. We shape the string into creative shapes without any definite form, and paint the area enclosed by the string using watercolors. Then, we use our imagination to describe what these shapes look like.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

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.
