MUS 16.03 Water In the Lake: Real Events for the Imagination

This class, based on the book Water in the lake: Real Events for the Imagination(1979) by Kenneth Maue, fuses cinema, the studio arts, sound, and theatre with the natural landscape in an intense study of improvisation, collectivity, and collaboration in conjunction with the environment.  Looking at religion, law, science, and politics as a way to consider cinema, sound, land art, site specificity, performance, and the unfolding of real time events within the artistic context, we will gain the critical capacity to understand intersections of cinema, performance art, video art, land art, and sonic practice. Through viewing films, listening to sounds, and studying works of art spanning painting, sculpture, installation, site-specific practice, and performance, we will inspire and provide critical/historical contexts for your personal work in the course.
