RO/LU Workshop

Spring Semester kicked off with a workshop with Matt Olson of the recently disbanded RO/LU Studio (and now of OOIEE). 

We started with several group readings including: "Pierre Menard author or Quixote" by Jorge Louis Borges, "Compatibility Mode" by Seth Price, "Art Which Can't be Art" by Alan Kaprow, "I (not love) information" and "Take Care" by Anthony Huberman. 

The idea was to recreate a collection of pictures of the artist Anthony Caro at Bennington College amongst a collection of sculpture spare parts - translating that moment in time to the now. 

The originals: 


The result: 


Marinating these discussions/ideas of appropriation in contemporary art and design in my head... more to come later.
