On Friday February 3rd 2017 LIU Post Art Foundation students will use Instagram to learn, record, discover and react at MOMA.
We created the collective hashtag #liupostfoundation for the visit to make our process live and in real-time while exploring specific aspects of the museum. The hashtag creates a unique feed that allows for us to be transparent while learning and also retaining an archivable aspect for reference and later use.
Follow our foundation instagram hashtag #liupostfoundation to follow the discoveries and discussions.

FOUNDATION STUDENTS USE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY TO STUDY SPACE
Students in Studio Foundation use 3D Modeling and 3D Printing to explore light, form and scale. They learned 3D modeling to create forms that juxtapose mass and volume that were printed on a small scale. That form was then “sliced” digitally and output to shapes that were cut and assembled by hand and compared with the small scale version to study light and the impact of a shift in scale scale on form These investigations are extensions of studies of light, space, and form in paper.
FOUNDATION SEMINAR DIGITAL PORTFOLIO WORKSHOP
Students worked in teams to learn how to photograph their work using SLR cameras, cool lights, and gray cards for correct exposure in a Foundation Seminar workshop on October 24, 2014. Lighting equipment can be signed out during Monday/Wednesday Common Hour, and Friday Studio Lab Hours.
FOUNDATION SEMINAR TRIP TO WHITNEY AND METROPOLITAN MUSEUMS OF ART
Students and faculty toured the last show at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s uptown location on October 10, 2014. Works by Jeff Koons challenged many students’ notions of what can be considered art by re-introducing the concept of ready-mades (made famous by Duchamp) and fabrication by someone other than the artist.
Students then had the option of continuing on to the Metropolitan Museum of Art where Professor Neill Slaughter entranced students and general museum visitors, alike, with his in-depth knowledge of paintings and drawings in the collection. Prof. Daniel Mirer provided students contextual information about the work of photographer,Thomas Struth, before the group topped off the tour with a visit to the classical Greek and Roman Art Gallery to draw from the sculpture under the tutelage of Prof. Dan Christofell.
