This course explores the spatial and time-based aspects of installation art in relation to the art historical precedents that influenced the development of the genre. An emphasis will be placed on multi-sensory installation, with a particular focus on the spatio-temporal potential of the non-visual senses. Students will design and create immersive, performative, and site-specific environments. All projects will be preceded by a written proposal and succeeded by an experiential reflection in the hopes that, as a group, we can come to some consensus about the integral role experience plays in the understanding of installation art. Additionally, we will take field trips to museums and artist's studios in order to better understand the genre's distinctive features and unofficial protocols relating to design, fabrication, set-up, and documentation.
