Activated Anamorphs
Activated Anamorphs: Performative Inhabitables and Interactive Prostheses

This remote only interdisciplinary studio course presents a hybrid of relationships between wearable sculpture and prosthetics, movement and identity-based performance for video and social media, and experimental fashion photography. The course emphasizes hands-on experience, the development of visual skills, craftsmanship, conceptual development, and performance techniques. Students will design and fabricate performative devices that alter, augment, mask, and transform the body and its inherent abilities. The course culminates in a series of virtual spectacles via live streaming events in collaboration with the School of Music’s Exploded Ensemble.

Various lectures, workshops, activities, presentations, and critiques will be included as an integral part of the learning process. Guest instructors from across the College of Fine Arts and outside of the institution will also provide lectures, and workshops that offer students multiple perspectives and techniques. Students will work in a variety of media, including sculptural approaches with fabric, papier-mâché, ready-made and recycled materials that investigate new ways to interact with our physical environment(s) through exploration in the adaptation, translation, enhancement, exaggeration, modification, and mutation of the human body. These constructions will then be activated through performance gestures for photo, live and prerecorded video, and social media platforms.
