ha. my teaching philosophy as sound bites

  1. deconstructing discrepancies
    between artist intent and viewers perception
  2. disrupting habits–disrupt
    habits of mind, habits of making, habits of process, habits of materiality
  3. disrupting assumptions—perceived
    cultural, historical and personal narratives
  4. enticing to enter the ongoing
    dialog of contemporary art and practice
  5. digging into ideation process
    through guided research
  6. unpacking ideation and making
  7. tethering* for increased
    capacity for risk taking—materiality, methodology, conceptually
  8. exploiting pocket
    technology—smart phones and social media
  9. synthesizing and documenting (writing)
    deconstruction of habits, intent vs perception, processes
  10. collaboratively participate
    in critical reflection and feedback throughout process
  11. open capacities for listening
    (responsiveness and adaptability) to materials, methods, ideations, context
  12. connecting to contexts—physical,
    historical, psychological, cultural, personal
  13. exposing and explore the
    multiplicity of source of ideation for generation of work
  14. translating concept from one
    form to another—metaphorical, sensory translations, etc
  15. making space for the unruly,
    the resistant and the radical
  16. rewriting our histories our
    stories to understand and navigate the now
  17. skin on or off—life starts
    now; not later—artist/designer/animator
  18. work is art, not “project.” Hang all crits as an exhibition
  19. *peer community in which
    student experiences a strong sense of belonging.
