SCULPTURE Art659, What It’s Like to be a Thing: How the Experience of Things Influences Their Making

This class explores ideas about objecthood and process through readings on environmental philosophy and artists whose work has been defined with posthuman studies. The term is divided between activity-based field trips and readings, discussion, writing, and critiques. These different course experiences serve as a lens for investigating how to make artistic practices interrogate what it means to be human and speculate on the reality of things that interact with and perceive one another, invisibly and every day. [Not offered 2018-19]
