Reading of interest for Sculpture 1

Here is an interesting article about the artist, Swoon "Life of Wonderment".  She talks about the blurring between art and activism and what motivates her in her work. Be sure to check out the short video and slide show about her and her work using this link to the NY Times article;

I find the idea of the miniature fascinating and was drawn to this article, about pre-industrial coltoys and miniatures, entitled "Tiny Furniture: A Diaspora of Dollhouses".  You can check out the exhibition, entitled, "Bucket Town: Four Centuries of Toymaking and Coopering in Hingham" at the Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts and other links to miniatures in the article. These are objects that were made to be touched and lived with in a different was than art.
