Maren Hassinger Activity Card

– Hassinger studied dance and performance and incorporates movement into her sculptural work.
– She sometimes brings together groups of people in communities to help create her work.
– Hassinger often uses simple repeating forms to make natural-looking sculptures from industrial material.

Guided Questions:
– Can you guess what material Hassinger used in this piece?
– What did she do to make the material look more natural?
– How did Hassinger create the sense of movement in her sculpture?

– Find an object around your house that you have multiples of. Things like Q-tips, toothpicks, Post-it notes, sandwich bags, etc., work great. Combine the multiples of this object together to make a sculpture that looks like a natural object or landscape.
