This course, taught by Mimi Gross, the 2010-11 Genevieve McMillan/Reba Stewart Chair in Painting, is a multi-discipline collaborative class that began with an open-ended prompt to create a plan for a digestive system playground. The students took that idea and ran with it, and soon what started as sketches had turned into an impressive free-form sculpture that continues to grow. Separately, each student developed a structure inspired by the human body, and together they have combined their different aesthetics into one organic form. The class truly lives up to its name by encouraging students from different backgrounds to share their disparate creations, ultimately showcasing the flawed beauty that results when these parts must fit together.
