Sorting Things Out

Critical Frameworks Module, ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA

In this module of Critical Frameworks we’ll consider how we might collect, collate, sort, aggregate, intermix, shuffle, juxtapose, isolate, frame, and activate our varying interests, influences, practices, and areas of expertise – and how we can then marshal various experimental writing practices to most effectively and creatively present our multi-faceted selves to the world. Of, if you’d prefer a culinary metaphor, we’ll experiment with recipes – scripts, programs, algorithms, maps and timelines – for marinating, chopping, paring, skimming, trussing, torching, and plating up our ideas and inspirations.

Art Scavenger Hunt (2009)

This is more of an “activity” than a “presentation,” but still…

For Robert’ Kirkbride’s Fall 2009 “Intersections” University Lecture course, I created, with the help of curator Silvia Rocciolo, a scavenger hunt of The New School’s fantastic modern and contemporary art collection. Students broke into groups, and each group was assigned a theme (e.g., machines, portraits, the color purple) to guide their viewing. They documented their finds, then “remixed” their findings into an online exhibition.
