Mapping + Memory: Spacial Constructions
Course No. SCU204/304/404 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Kevin Kautenburger
This course will focus on various properties of memory as they are informed by contemporary science and philosophy via the transformation of "information, thoughts and experiences" as a process of mapping and as a condition of recording into works of art. Mapping (recording) for this course should be understood as a process of revelation, a translation of fact (reality) or imagination (memory) into dimensional representations. Mapping implies numerous spatial relationships, framing positions such as scale and physical proximity, the passage of time and the probabilistic qualities of space-time. In addition to significance of proximity when exploring and understanding space the process of mapping is also associated with journey in space or as the length of a durational event. In order to accomplish these transformations students will be able to engage and examine both physical and virtual approaches to spatial construction will be encouraged. Open to all students.
