New Genres Class explores Interlochen's scenic campus by creating Environmental Installations
The New Genres course gives students the opportunity to explore new means of creating artwork. For this class's recent assignment, students were asked to select a site on campus and create an artwork that related to the location. Students experimented with materials, some students introduced new materials into the site while others choose to work with found materials from the site. After completion of theses installations we held our class critique outside at these locations. The emphasis of this assignment was to explore what it means when artworks are taken out of traditional spaces (ie galleries and museums).
