4.301 | Introduction to Artistic Experimentation

Instructor: Marisa Morán Jahn

This hands-on studio course introduces artistic practice and critical visual thinking through three projects that explore sculpture, architecture, performance, video, sound art, site interventions, and strategies for artistic engagement in the public realm.  Lectures, screenings, guest presentations, field trips, readings, and debates supplement studio practice.

This course draws inspiration from the notion of a “daemon.”  For ancient Greeks, a daemon referred to a divinity, a being betwixt and between humans and the supernatural, an inner spirit, or inspiring force.
