Workshop DescriptionStacy Skolnik
In this class we will work on developing writing in the artist’s practice and will explore ways that thinking in and through writing can generate new ideas for experimentation and expansion of artistic range. Through our readings of and responses to creative and performative texts, the course will focus on how language might be integrated into or have an effect on one’s work across disciplines. Daily assignments and prompts will ask the artist to confront their practice and think about how and why they do what they do in any particular medium. Students will be invited to create 10-minute text-based audio pieces which they will have the option of broadcasting publicly as a class at a later date.
Illusions, Simulations, Archives, Suspensions of Time – what are the generative chances when following with failure through action? Taking steps in each of your practices and methods of making across various mediums, I will be present in sharing ways of composing that attempt to tackle relationships with one's audience, and what it might mean for one another to ebb-and-flow through the real v the artificial v the interior v the exterior of a kind of performance practice. We will be moving inside and outside of the building with a desire to pose questions of what we are doing in relationship to where we are and who we are with.
