Bridging philosophy and practice, we work with the parts of the self that show up to participate in the creative process. Working from an ethics of co-composition, we will study presence, attention, the creative process, and communication. Exploring what it means to live in a generative universe, we will question what we think a creative human can be: means, modes and embodiment.

We’ll look at art-making as a practice of response-ability* for the quality of your connections.
