Taught By: Anne Gaines
Section: A

CRN: 1957

Credits: 3

Everything is made up of or emits energy. How can we both utilize and visualize its presence? This course expands the practice of drawing to include not only alternative materials and methods but also addresses the energy of the body itself as an instrument. The course material will include an introduction to current research in the fields of applied kinesiology, quantum mechanics and the philosophy of yoga. We will discuss the work of artists such as Adrian Piper, Joseph Bueys, Taisha Paggett, Helen Mirra, Mirko Ilic, and Marina Abramović, among others, as we utilize the energy of the body to enact an expanded drawing practice.
