About the workshop?

This workshop is an opportunity to brainstorm an idea, get feedback on a project in-progress, or critique a finished work through a formal review. Through years of working with graduate and undergraduate students, Alex has developed a variety of tactics, techniques, and frameworks to discuss work at various stages of completion. The goal of this time together is to engage deeply with your process and outcomes to push work to new levels of intellectual rigor and practical refinement. Feedback, reviews, and critiques engage the theoretical, conceptual, and practical aspects of any given work to provide meaningful responses that help move the work forward.

Who is it for?

  • Sound Art – Installation, Composition, Performance, Theory
  • Creative Technology [Code + Data + Art]
  • Intersections of Art and Graphic Design
  • Intersections of Art and Science
  • Nature Sound, Noise Pollution, and Listening as a Practice
It’s also for those who are:
  • Considering graduate school
  • Interested in learning more about being an ‘academic’ artist
  • Interested in getting feedback on existing work, finished or in-progress
  • Interested in exploring new and different ways public art can engage with communities

What to Expect

  • Deep engagement with the work, a questioning of all things context, audience, and perception.
  • An active questioning of different working methodologies.
  • Feedback and critique rooted in both theory and practice.
  • Reading references and precedent work

What to bring

For those interested in project feedback or a critique of existing or in-progress work, it’s best to send the work in advance along with an artist statement.
Please note: these sessions are for self-directed projects as part of an individual artist, art collective, or art student practice. These are not for professional consulting on client projects. If you are interested in consultation on a professional, client project, please contact Alex and World of Co to make these arrangements separate from this education-based system.
