(in)Visibility: Aesthetic Dimensions of Perception
Columbia Museum of Art
Sat 28 Oct 10 am - 1 pm
Hands-on and collaborative art projects allow participants to investigate ideas about perception and (in)visibility by creating prints, drawings in two and three dimensions, clay sculptures and more. We will explore drawing and artmaking through all the senses Classically, the study of perception aims to understand its limits – what is the lowest level of physical stimuli that can be detected? It seeks to define thresholds, the boundaries between the visible and invisible. 
This drop-in artmaking workshop bridges the science and philosophy of perception with the aesthetics and physicality of making, as we question how the concept of (in)visibility takes on varied meanings across disciplines. 
Activities include collaborative drawing, gelli plate printing, observational drawing, music, movement and more. Whether drawing for 20 minutes or two hours, this is an opportunity to explore visibility and the sensorium through creating original artwork.
All materials are provided and no prior experience is necessary. 
Support for the event is generously provided by the USC Humanities Collaborative.
