Body 2.0

Wintersession
3 credits

Our bodies will be different in the future. This interdisciplinary course encourages students to reimagine the future human body. Students will explore the fundamentals of science storytelling, performance art and design fiction to develop innovative objects, performances and experiences. These explorations could be technological, political, environmental, spiritual and so on.

Students will be exposed to contemporary discourses on body and performance to further explore theories on embodiment, materiality, bodily practices and spatiality of body. We will pose new questions about the role of the body, learn to use body as a medium to approach artistic practice and reflect on current problems and social issues through "hacking" bodies, spaces and narratives.
