 Indiana University Bloomington

A few spaces still available for "Non-Human" and "The Fear of Empty Space" cross-campus workshops

October 5, 2013

Students in "The Rural Post Industrial" workshop took full advantage of the opportunity provided for making discoveries and process exploration. During the 4-day, 1-credit-hour workshop, participants made a day-long visit to a local rural post-industrial site—a derelict quarry outside of Bloomington. Among the many projects resulting from the students' mostly independent explorations were undergraduate Erick Gama's concept sketch and graduate student Kelly Novak's site-based metal smith design.

Kevin Lair, Assistant Professor with the IU Columbus Center for Art + Design (IUCA+D), has developed the series of cross-campus workshops. A few spaces are still available for the remaining two workshops in the series: "Non-Human" and "The Fear of Empty Space." Students from any discipline are welcomed—and encouraged. The more diverse the backgrounds of the students are, the more engaging the workshops. For more information, see Cross-campus workshops available to IU students this fall or contact Professor Lair.
