Xerox Samurai No.5 by The-BenT-One Xerox Samurai No.5 by The-BenT-One
Title - Xerox Samurai
Media - Industrial Cardboard and Garbage Bags
Time - 63 hrs
completed early November, 2009

This was the result of a project for my Intro to Sculpture class. The assignment was to take one material and use another to bind the first material together. One of the options was to make something that could be worn. I then proceeded to make a full scale replica of a suit of japanese samurai armor. I put in far more time than was necessary, but the result is as you see above.

This piece has been accepted to the Functional Art Show art the EckHaus Gallery in Kutztown, PA. [link]

My hero ;_;

Hah, awesome, if all classes were as fun as this, I would never have become a failing loser.

trust me, this class is NOT fun. You have to make things fun if you want them to be fun. And I will play the hero as long as I can! (or at least until a Viking shows up...)

Yar, I understand a class is only as fun as you make it, but the classes I have been too are so rigid and expect the same boring results from everyone. I'd love a teacher who would accept, or even just assign something that can yield such wacky projects like this.

you would love my professor. She is a crazy artist who makes you do crazy shit so you learn all the things you need to know in sculpture. she basicly teaches the way teachers used to before No Child Left Behind.

That's cool, when it comes to art classes I think the teachers should all be screened to see that they have a good solid sense of humor.

I remember years ago that every art teacher I had would inspire us some way, even if it was just playing trippy music on an old boombox, it helped everyone relax and create some interesting stuff. Recently, yeah, seems like all classes suck HARD. The last year of high school, the art class especially was so frikkin' generic, even though it was the same fun teacher I had years before (he was a long-term substitute teacher). All we did was draw circles and shade them properly. Or draw a cone and shade it properly. Or stare at a bucket and notice how it was shaded properly. LOL.

That was all so we would have something uniform and understandable to show to some mysterious people in suits who would come into the classes once in a while. Now I know what to blame. I guess it's better to treat every kid like a retard and have them pass than try to evoke a little imagination out them.

Why do the noble-sounding laws seem to screw us over the most?

Oops, off-topic...

...oh yeah, cool suit! Awesome that it's on display at an art-house.

Your description of High School art is almost scary in its acuracy. The only place left where real art is taught is in college, which is where I plan to teach in the future. All you really need to teach in college is a Masters in whatever you do and to be a fairly well know figure in the art world. at that point, you BETTER have enough skill to teach kids how to create their own unique art. That is what I want to do.

wow, I guess I went off topic as well. all I can say is keep trying hard to break out of the mold and you should find a style that suits you, if you haven't already.
