How do we tell whether something is getting closer to us or moving away from us? Our two eyes tell us two different versions of the truth, and our brain combines them to create our perception of space. In this workshop, environmental sculptor Jeff shares his approach to spatial perception for artists. Check out the geometry of one point perspective versus the geometry of binocular vision. Try a hands-on experiment in 'stereo' vision using projectors and cameras. Students sketch in perspective, try out several kinds of stereopticon 3D viewing devices for themselves, and evaluate their differences.
Site sculptor Jeff Mather is a master teaching artist and nationally known community-based artist. He has served over 120 sites as artist-in-residence, many of these having him return year after year.
Jeff has worked with groups of every age level, creating more public art in Georgia than any other sculptor. In addition to his sculpture residencies, Jeff is the lead artist for the YAWAC Digital Storytelling program. He is also at the forefront of cross-curriculum arts infusion and has co-created and co-taught units in world history, science, math and special education. He is all about turning S.T.E.M. into S.T.E.A.M.!
Jeff's presence as a teaching artist in a school can be a catalyst for forging new inter-departmental partnerships and new partnerships with the community at large.
