Transcript With her unique philosophy on display, Linda King stares at the building of EC's Organic Sculpture, left. The project was a protest against the plastic, unreal environment of the University Center. Made of "real" things—old signs, bricks, a car tire, coat hangers—the sculpture stands completed, below. The things used were symbolic of the ECers desire to share their involvement with all students. College Erects Organic Sculpture to The Experimental College is like a contagious growth upon the university establishment ... it hopes to grow and grow until students become totally involved in their education. EC is an experience in educational reform ... a challenge to the status quo. It aims to eliminate the problems of grade stress and the structured classroom. Courses under the EC curriculum varied from Ayn Rand's Objectivism to African Culture. The most successful course offered by EC was Oriental Philosophy which began last fall and continued into spring. Discussions were steered by students and faculty who felt they had a workable and comprehensive knowledge of the subject. The atmosphere was total ly unstructured—no one was designated a "leader" but rather a member of the group. In protest to the "plastic, sterile, antiseptic environment of the University Center," EC erected an "Organic Sculpture" on the back lawn of the UC last fall. The structure was organic in that each part of it was representative of human involvement. It was built of "things" which its contributors held dear ... a stack of bricks, a crumpled trash can, a dissertation on sex, a twisted umbrella, an American flag, a large, handmade peace symbol. This was a monument to the university's existence ... it was a plea to the establishment to accept a new form of involvement. 42
