Meet the Team

Atelier InSite is a Creative Inquiry project that implements public artwork on the Clemson University Campus.

It capitalizes on a cross-disciplinary and inclusive approach that is predominantly student driven. Our goal is to create a new paradigm for the administration of public art on university campuses.

“By Students, for Students”

The word Atelier is derived from the French word meaning "workshop" or "studio. Atelier describes the atmosphere and attitude towards the installation and development of public art on campus.

Meet the Creative Inquiry Students

Our creative inquiry team has engaged students representing all of the 5 colleges on campus: Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Science; Architecture, Arts, and Humanities; Business and Behavioral Science; Engineering and Science; and Health, Education, and Human Development. These departments come together in our team collaboratively working in a predominantly student driven class for the implementation of public art on the campus of Clemson University. Creative Inquiry is an initiative at Clemson University that engages students at the Undergraduate level in applied research.

Malik Sanders

"My name is Malik Sanders and I'm from Marion, South Carolina. Currently, I am a junior architecture student with a minor in art. Public art, whether fixed or ephemeral just like architecture, or any design has the potential to ignite change in the hearts of those it encounters, if it is done with care and intent. I’m looking forward to learning and building lasting memories with Atelier InSite."

Jordyn Carroll

"My name is Jordyn Carroll and I am a health science major here at Clemson on the pre-professional health track. I am also an art minor, which I began in the hopes of expressing my more creative side and pursuing one of my passions: art. Many people do not realize the utility of creativity in medicine, but an artistic eye promotes detail orientation and visual perception in an operating room or clinical setting. Outside of the professional integration of art and medicine, I find joy in combining my medical goals and artistic appreciation through anatomical and biological drawings. "

Sidney Brusse

"My name Sidney Brusse and I am from Charleston, South Carolina. I considered art an avid hobby before deciding to pursue a fine arts degree at Clemson University where my childhood curiosity returned, creating a nostalgic influence throughout my work. This nostalgia also aided in the brainstorming of our CI archival photo project. After this semester, I will be studying art abroad in Italy and will graduate in August 2022."

Growing up on a farm, I was surrounded by nature for most of his life and it has become the primary influence on my work.
