The Skybridge Art & Sound Space, which bridges the 11th- and 12th-street college buildings on the third floor, is a vibrant and exciting laboratory for aural concepts and critical thinking. Students will learn the history and practice of audio art—including discussions of works by innovators such as Walter Ruttman; John Cage; Pauline Oliveros—in the context of exhibition conceptualization, the gallery arts, and installation practice. Students will work towards the creation of at least one, and possibly two, installations in the Space. Sound recording basics will also be covered so that students may work independently. Field trips to galleries, radio stations and other sonically intriguing environments, as well as guest speakers, will enhance classroom discussions and reading. Students meet once a week, and must have flexible schedules particularly on the days before an opening. See the instructor for further information.
Open to Undergraduate students.
