FSU Art Assistant Teaching Professor Kevin Curry will be presenting his paper “The offscreen romance of art and technology” at ‘Tectonic Shifts – Breaking New Ground’, the 2015 FATE (Foundations in Art: Theory and Education) biennial conference to be held at The Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, IN.
Kevin’s paper and the panel he will be sitting on are part of the “Robot Invasion: New Technologies in Foundations” session. During this session, Kevin will address how he has incorporated digital tools along with hands on exercises to further the creative pursuits of students in all Digital Foundations courses.
“This paper deals with ways in which I move Digital Foundation students through a traditional (Concept/Design/Execution) creative process while challenging them to use the extensive technologies available here at Florida State University and in doing so, have them see that technology is merely another tool at their disposal.
Having them move their designs “off the screen” and back into the analog world, where issues of physical craft and assembly deny the finished glaze of screen-based art, establishes a path for the highest caliber of intellectual and physical work.”
