Topic: The Body

What is a ‘body’? This course invites students to respond creatively to the differing conceptions and manifestations of a ‘body’, not only human, animal and importantly, non-human beings, but also, other expressions of ‘body’ such as ‘something that ‘embodies or gives concrete reality to a thing’ or as ‘a sensible object in physical space’ or as the ‘denseness, fullness, or firmness of texture’ or the ‘fullness and richness of flavor’ etc. Students will be asked to experiment with various media and produce a portfolio of visual artworks (2D, 3D or performative etc.) that reflects a range of these differing perspectives and complexities of the concept of a ‘body’. Students will also be expected to engage in group discussions, crits and field trips.
