This cross-disciplinary art and design studio course examines location and context in Paris. A variety of modes of expression based in image-making, object-making, sound, video, installation or performance may serve as tools to discover and document local urban phenomena, places and people. Site-specificity, historical/cultural/social contexts and variable media ranging from graffiti to sound will be addressed through discussions, city explorations, readings and critiques. Students will ultimately explore the city of Paris through research and making such that their work will be firmly rooted in their local experience.
Open to Undergraduate students.
