Did you see my posts from last summer, and wish you could take my Walking as Artistic Practice class, but you were far away from Minneapolis? Good news! This summer I’m offering a new version that is online as a remote learning experience!
This workshop is designed as a brief survey of some of the origins, theories, processes, and manifestations of walking as art. Read, watch, and discuss perspectives on walking-based projects. Using this information as a springboard, students will complete their own walking exercises, and execute original walking-based projects. This summer we will be covering the following three topics: walking as ritual, who gets to walk and where?, and archiving walking. Open to students ages 18 and above.
This remote class will be conducted via Google Meet. It will include presentations by the instructor, class discussions, and opportunities for students to share their work.
Required hardware: A computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access, a camera, and microphone for class meetings and to capture and upload work. Required supplies for the first class: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook; digital or cell phone camera.
Last week I visited MCAD’s undergraduate Professional Practices course taught by Regan Golden-McNerney and Michael Kareken to talk about how to research grad schools. The students had excellent questions and the conversation was very lively!
I enjoyed giving a virtual artist talk to Ross Schlemmer’sHistory of Social Practice class at UMass Dartmouth this past Tuesday. I focused on a selection of my more participatory projects across a range of media, and fielded very insightful questions from his students!
I’m delighted to have a few video pieces from Phil and I’s Demarcation Series on view in this online exhibition. This program of video works, curated by Adam Farcus, gives shape to human attempts at communing with the natural world, exemplifies ways that we metaphorically use nature to speak about existence, and translates Earth forms into language.
