Summer I:

  • ARTE 2500 Art + Design Abroad: Studio –  Site Sensitivity and Iceland: Vidoe Studio
  • ARTE 2501 Art + Design Abroad: History – Interface Iceland: Cultural Studies

View samples of students’ work from 2015.

This is a 5 week studio experience where students begin by collecting footage and images from a week-long road trip around 3/4th of Iceland. After that we will settle in the northwest, in a town called Skagastrond. We will spend three weeks there and then hit the road again, looking at large-scale artworks and ending up in Reykjavik.

The projects are structured and focused on landscape and it’s influence on time and experience.  Students will participate in a series of exercises, hike on a glacier, go whale watching, visit a geothermically heated nature bath, watch the sun barely dip in the sky at midnight on the summer solstice, watch films, listen to lectures, and discuss readings. There are intense critiques and conversations every day except weekends.
