Nature and Culture
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: This course requires a minimum prerequisite of 1.0 credits of First-Year studio curriculum.
Nature is thought to be the creative physical power operating in our material world. Currently, we understand that nature, not humanity, is the immediate cause of all the world’s phenomena. This course directs students’ investigations into how contemporary artists interpret, intervene, manipulate and explore the collision of the material/natural world and present-day culture. Students complete assignments in the research and production of art that explore contemporary attitudes to nature and on the effects that nature and culture have on each other.
Notes: This course will be taught through discipline-specific sections, i.e., drawing, sculpture, photography, etc. Please refer to website for details.
