ARTS 231 Spring 2014 The Studio as Laboratory: Cross-disciplinary Investigations

This inter-disciplinary course explores the intersections of artistic and scholarly inquiry, looking at ways in which artists have engaged in studies outside of their own discipline in order to inform their artistic practice. Students will be introduced to artists from Albrecht Dürer to Mark Dion, whose rigorous investigations in the realms of science, mathematics and music to social and political histories have directly impacted and shaped their work. This course combines both lecture and studio, where students will approach given studio assignments through the lens of their own in-depth research. This course is open to a range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture and video.
