Untitled Lists of Transformation
The following pieces were written by local high school students participating in the Park’s Sculpture Studio education program. Lead Educator Douglas Paulson asked the students to list things that had been transformed by their experience in Sculpture Studio. The resulting compositions can be read as poetry:
Our paper turned to a book
Our book then got lines
Our book was defined by different words.
Then our book had drawing.
The the inflatable got different things on it.
The inflatable was getting destroyed
We started with paper and markers then went to making objects
My love for dogs
The place changed
how many dogs I saw
the things I did
the view of nature
Deactivated –> Activated
Human –> Cyborgs
Cyborg rebellion –>
One control –> Everyone’s control
Black hole Beauty
New inventions Games
