Shoes and/or Poetry 

This article was just brought to my attention, "because it's about shoes." "Bringing a Daughter Back from the Brink with Poems" Is it always about shoes? Are shoes one of our primary apparently-casual-examples? Even if we aren't talking about shoes, does it inevitably insist on being sorted? The shoe always goes on in the end... …

The Shoe as Interface 

If you are looking for a Breadth/Elective course for the Spring, “Aesthetics of Technology” will be looking at “the Shoe as Interface” as a focus this time around. Performing an interdisciplinary examination of the fundamental role of shoes in our world, we will engage in Material Cultural Studies. Drawing on Philosophy, Aesthetics, History, Movement Education, …

Thinking Through the Interface 

Fall 2014, Mon 7:20-9pm Aesthetics of Technology A&H4089 In this course we will be looking at the aesthetic effects of interfaces—not just how they appear, but how appearance itself is mediated by the deeper influence of interfaces, often to create the very sense of aesthetics as a "surface effect." But what is an interface? How …

Re: Sketches toward a Binary Aesthetic 

A little cross posting here. A post on the Aesthetics of Technology blog, Aestech, I sketched up recently has curiously been getting some social media attention. Odd, because I would have imagined it more obscure than most. But somehow what it's probing at seems to resonate. Either that or it's just the fancy blog design, …

Sketches toward a Binary Aesthetic 

If one were to attempt to locate the fundamental elements of an Aesthetic of Technology, where would one start? What are the marks or gestures that might underpin any effort to render such a thing? What are the basic marks you can make? In geometry, we always forget--since the forms are supposed to be eternal, …

Drawing Lab 

One of the things that always comes up when talk turns to the losses we suffer around education—our regrets at being of a certain age without having brought certain things with us—is drawing. (Languages being the other big one.) It has a kind of inevitability, just as a conversation about waning literacy will eventually turn …

Barterin’ for Learnin’: The Trade School at The Whitney Museum 

Our class on Relational Drawing is all full up for this, but I highly encourage people to attend one of the other classes. The Trade School is well worth experiencing. We've enjoyed working with them a great deal. And if you are interested in hearing when we'll be offering Relational Drawing again, just get on …

The Aesthetics of Education 

I've been working a lot lately on the imagery of educational philosophy. Which is to say: what if we took the aesthetics of education not to be a particular sub-discipline, but instead thought of educational thought as essentially an aesthetic problem? What is the "art," in its expansive sense, of education? Having taught a few …

They Roam the Earth Again 

Yesterday was Three Kings Day, and for me it was an opportunity to revisit and reflect on a project I worked on last year. El Museo del Barrio commissioned the artist Polina Porras Sivolobova to create replacements for the Three Kings puppets they had used for decades in the Three Kings Day Parade. My primary …

Mediumism: The Art of Education 

As someone who takes the aesthetics of education seriously, I was pleased to be asked to respond to René Arcilla's new book, Mediumism. The Panel is this evening, and should prove interesting. In part because Arcilla confounds the line concerning aesthetics and education. If Art Education, at first glance, is simply about the teaching of …
