With Thuy Le and Kara Lynch
In this workshop, students will explore the idea and implications of aftermath. Utilizing aftermath as a framework, students will consider what remains-how the past persists in the present, how the future is shadowed, and the ways in which no framework is stable. This intensive theory/practice workshop in Installation and Creative Writing is designed for Division II students interested in developing practices that engage questions of site, space, time, experience and the senses within specific historical contexts. Students will develop their skills in reading, writing, looking and translating between abstract concepts and concrete forms of artistic expression. Weekly exercises will hone critical skills and support students in their self-directed research project/presentation. This course will encourage students to broaden their perspective of artistic process and practice as we challenge traditional modes of production and presentation collectively. This will be a challenging course for serious students in creative writing, media, visual, and performing arts.
