Cross-Disciplinary Art: Life Studies
Exploring cross-disciplinary studio approaches in a collaborative learning environment, students explore speculative ideas of life, physical existence and materiality. Life Studies draws upon diverse perspectives and practice-based approaches from art, the sciences and the humanities. Informed by contemporary perspectives of ecology, biology, technology, and sustainability, each student builds an ideas-based studio practice in any medium through engagement with the living, the body, and decolonial thought.
Students will move through this specialization by studying across course offerings in both Art and Liberal Arts & Sciences.
