The Art of Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session features three takes on the artistic expression of experience. Sarah Lewis, who guest curated an amazing special issue of Aperture magazine entitled Vision & Justice, explores black experience as depicted by black photographers in arresting images that capture both injustice and humanity. Experience: Culture, Cognition, and the Common Sense, edited by Caroline Jones and Rebecca Uchill, offers a reading experience like no other: a heat-sensitive cover by Olafur Eliasson, endpapers that contain human pheromones, colorful margins and edges. The physical book produces experience while functioning as a container of ideas around cultural and sensory realms of experience. Artist Clifford Ross works to reconcile realism (he invented a super-high-resolution camera) and abstraction in his representations of nature. His books, Seen & Imagined and Hurricane Waves, offer augmented reality and virtual reality experiences through a free downloadable app. A highly visual session covering a spectacular range of experience will be hosted by art historian Robert Wiesenberger.
