CSC scores well in bits and pieces contest
The annual Youth Recycled Art Prize is exhibiting the work of 54 Centralian Senior College students.
The Alice Springs competition accepted sculptures of recycled and reused parts fashioned as a creature, emotional state, or an environment.
Creative and Visual Arts teacher Judith Coverdale said the artists were “highly imaginative’” with components from the Alice Springs Rediscovery Centre.
“The theme of each sculpture was decided by the individual, or team of creators,” she said. “But sculptures had to be built entirely of recycled parts, and be personally symbolic.
“Components used by the years 10 and 11 visual arts students included books, bike parts, Christmas decorations, straws, wool, yoga mats, wire frames, wine racks, toys and letter organisers..
“The sculptures were judged as a reflection of personal expression, their aesthetic and meaning, repurpose and originality, and how they challenged and developed their concept.”
The college’s Elise Phillis collected second place for Dysfunctional (emotional state). Third place was awarded to the school’s Jacob Hatton for Skeletal (creature).
