- Interdisciplinary Visual Arts
This course explores, through physical practice, what it is to move from "natural" states to "performance" states. The primary aim is to consider performance from alternate viewpoints, including performer, creator, viewer, and thinker. Conceptual and perceptual frameworks involving time, space, place and the body are introduced and considered via practical application in the studio with each student’s body being their primary resource. All feedback is theorized through discussion and writing, which leads to additional rounds of practice, experimentation and creation. The course emphasizes learning by doing and is geared toward individuals looking to develop and better understand the fundamental phenomenon underlying a “performed” body. Students examine written texts, create and perform.
Open to Undergraduate students.
