Gwon Osang, a contemporary Korean artist, uses hundreds of photographs of his subjects to create remarkable 3D sculptures.


Creative Sculpture With a Twist: 3 Extraordinary Ways to Carve Art Out of Ordinary Objects Paintings normally require canvas and most theater takes a stage, but carvings can come out of almost any material - a fact which some talented artists have put to into practice in amazing ways. Most people are familiar with amazingly carved ice statues and perhaps even giant cheese sculptures, but what about eggs, pencils or books? Here are three approaches to carving used to create amazing art from ordinary (and often fragile) objects.


Modern Fossils by Christopher Locke

Locke uses a proprietary blend of concrete to create remarkable art pieces that have the look and feel of real stone fossils.


Design a Monument (Lesson Idea)


1. Ask your students to design a monument for the twenty-first century. What aspect of American life would they want to celebrate or commemorate? What form would it take and why?

2. Discuss the meaning and significance of monuments. Use the following questions as a guide.

What is a monument? What is its purpose? What monuments are you familiar with? What do they have in common? What types of events or people do they represent or commemorate? Are there any monuments, memorials, or plaques in your neighborhood or school? What are different ways to mark a monument? Where are monuments usually located? What type of information can be found on or near a monument? Which event, person, or people would you make a monument to? Why?

3. Ask students to work in small groups. Have student groups locate and document a local monument in their neighborhood using the questions below as a guide.

Where is this monument? What event or person does it document? What information does the monument communicate about the person or event? What does the monument look like? Make a sketch. Is the monument easy to find? Easy to see from a distance? Why?

4. Have students record this information in a notebook or journal and review their findings. What did they discover about monuments?

5. Have students think about where they found these monuments. What kinds of spaces were they?

6. Ask your students to present and discuss their findings with the class.
