Class as collage, mixtape, chop shop - a place where vehicles are dismantled and distributed. In this course, students are encouraged to explore a variety of media through both individual and collaborative prompts. Group discussions will be had on authorship, appropriation, the collective, the individual, and transformation. Students will engage with techniques and media such as airbrush, assemblage, performance, and print to repair, examine, and transform objects and practices. Readings will include The Aesthetics and Ethics of Copying from Darren Hudson Hicks and select works by bell hooks. Assignments will include Communicative Practice Scoring in which participants will be challenged as maker, facilitator, audience, and interpreter. The class will culminate in a group project guided by our discussions and is adaptable according to the group’s skills and interests.
