The Slanted Horizon

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-163


Ohan Breiding (Section 01)


This intermediate production class will use DIY techniques and mundane objects and materials as tools to build sculptures (ready-mades), and installations that will later be used as costumes and stage-sets for performance and photographic/video documentation. Using queer theory, critical race studies, science-fiction and literature references, we will attempt to think through and question the very notion of the horizon as construct and indicator of stable ground to collaboratively create a piece for a gallery exhibition. We will ask ourselves: What does ecological philosophy currently look like, and (how) will it translate after the “end of the world”? This class will search for, invent, and queer Hyperobjects - entities of vast temporal/spatial dimensions that defeat traditional ideas of what a thing, object, or photograph/documentation is and collectively create “the slanted horizon."
