Penn State School of Visual Arts’ Distinguished Professor of Art, Chris Staley will give a lecture titled "Awareness: Of Where Art and Life Intersect" at Pratt Institute of Art and Design in Brooklyn, NY, Friday, February 28, 2014.
“We live in a time of unprecedented change. What has this change done to how we relate to objects, each other and our sense of place? How has our sense of time been affected? What are the underlying factors that cause a person to be curious? How does spitting in a cup create insights to the powerful corporeal boundaries between inside and outside? How does throwing pots on an I-phone relate to the world of the analog and digital? And lastly why are tears of joy and sorrow important to learning?”
These questions and more will be addressed in this fast- paced dynamic 40-minute lecture.
