Object Language, Wood 5 x 32: Modular design consists of Objects connecting with each other, and in this piece it is very obvious that all three objects can connect to one another. Modular design is also about small elements combining and turning into a bigger system. With Modules they can often be complicated or compromised but in this certain artwork it seem to be working out fine.

Sarah Ambrose, Belonging, Masonite: Conceptual ideas are based in the mind, language is a tool made from humans. Bringing a tool like that in to art is very smart idea. The art is unified as from is formation.
14. Sculpture using time and motion:
Dylan Muller, Journey To The Feast, 3 Channel Installation:
This piece is a giant sculpture that surrounds the viewer. There is one image that shows a giant panorama of a video that is highly distorted, along with white noise and a couple other sounds this piece seems to take the viewer into either a very anxious state, or a very calm on.
