A Visit to Thorsten Brinkmann’s “La Hutte Royal”

vorlage_Brinkmann_agendaToday a few members of the class visited Thorsten Brinkmann’s  permanent installation “La Hutte Royal”. The house is located on Troy Hill in Pittsburgh, commissioned by collector Evan Mirapaul. The installation consists of an entire house that has been transformed into a gesamtkunstwerk.  Thanks Evan for showing us your house! We had a great time. What a fun installation and very relevant to what we are doing in this class. For more info on the artist, please visit: thorstenbrinkmann.com



Works in Progress: Prosthetic Makeup and Identity

IMG_1219Below are images of life casts that have been taken using alginate to mold the face which will then cast in plaster. The plaster casts are sculpted using plasticine (oil based clay) to form the new identity of their characters. These plaster and clay faces will then have molds made over them for casting cold foam prosthetic make-up appliances. More in process images coming soon…..
