Installation art can be defined as an artistic genre of site-specific, three-dimensional works designed to transform the perception of a space.
Year 11 students were tasked with creating a site-specific installation that changed the way staff and students used or perceived a space.
First students needed to choose a site and research how it was used, then create a work that challenged this. For example one student discovered that the steps to the Mezz were often used to sit and gossip, so her work forces the viewer to read these words where the unkind tone is unavoidable. She used clear or light paper to suggest the whispered nature of the comments.
Another students choose an area that wasn’t often frequented, and to encourage more traffic created colourful origami shapes to entice the viewer.
