These dream machines are inspired by the contemporary artist Souther Salazar. The students transform a square into a cube (continuing their unit on shape vs. form) and then add a 3-D control panel. The students then learned about and brainstormed ideas for a renewable energy source to power their machines. Once their machine was completed, the students brainstormed ideas for dreams and added those to fill their composition using white colored pencil.
