Riverview Column

In Progress - Riverview High School

Riverview, NB 2021

High school students at Riverview High School (Riverview, New Brunswick) are working with LASG members Matt Gorbet, Rob Gorbet and Philip Beesley for the 2020-2021 school term to explore the fabrication and construction of a diagrid chevron column. This cross-country Tech-Art collaboration challenges both students and a school system to rethink the labels they put on themselves, as they explore the transdisciplinary connections between art, coding, psychology, sociology, and electronics. Can students build a professional-quality art installation that will reside outside the RHS theatre, able to respond to stimulus from observers? Can this art installation draw people from different social groups together and elicit discussions about art and education? Can this art installation serve as an example of Renaissance education in the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
