The Open Studio course will emphasize concepts and ideas determining the choice of subject matter, thematic/metaphorical content, and multiple hybrids of materials and disciplines used. Ultimately blurring the boundaries of multiple genres and disciplines is encouraged. Innovative approaches to art making in relation to contemporary ideas will always be integrated into the research and development of each project. This site also presents interdisciplinary assignments from other courses.
This Introductory Open Studio course is about researching and developing new genres, multiple combinations and various multidisciplinary hybrids of art making into interdisciplinary art practices which convey contemporary thematic/metaphorical content. Methods of art practices may include options of integrating: installation, digital reproduction and time based work (blurring the boundaries between performance, video, sound, animation, book works) as components for each project.
Many of the student work examples presented below may not represent all the objectives for the Open Studio course but instead offer some initial ideas in combining various disciplines.
Often a single example of work presented on this blog may not demonstrate all the required objectives for a particular assignment. Instead students should collectively consider: the required objectives for each assignment, the examples presented on this blog and during in class presentations. As well ideas discovered through a student's independent research in combination with examples and various ideas presented by instructor will ultimately be the best approach for synthesizing ideas and reaching the requirements (and unique outcome) for any particular course project.
