CUPFA hosts MicroTalks – Six minute talks by Part-time faculty

microtalks January 21
CUPFA is proud to present the second in a series of three MicroTalk evenings that highlight part-time faculty’s research and creation.  CUPFA’s second event, entitled Light and Landscape follows our first highly successful MicroTalk evening held last October to celebrate Campus Equity Week.

The CUPFA MicroTalks are interdisciplinary events that bring together part-time faculty members from diverse areas within the University.  Light and Landscape showcases faculty from Photography, Intermedia/Cyberarts, Film Animation, Painting and Drawing, Ceramics, Art History, MFA Studio Arts and Marketing.

The themes light and landscape have predominant places in the history and tradition of aesthetics.  In classical physics they are understood as complementary forces: form/energy, particles/waves.  New physics blurred these distinctions by proposing a wave-particle duality where electrons exhibit both particle and wavelike properties.  This MicroTalk explores principles of light and landscape through the lens of art history and contemporary art practices.
