Jeff Whetstone Visiting Artist Lecture
(4:00 PM - 5:00 PM)
Sponsored by: The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography
The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography is pleased to present visiting artist Jeff Whetstone.
Jeff Whetstone’s photographs and films imagine rural America through lenses of anthropology and mythology. Whetstone’s Post-Pleistocene photographs illuminate the depths of wild caves in Alabama and Tennessee, where layers of human markings reveal millennia of cultural evolution. His ongoing New Wilderness project portrays a human-centric American wilderness and questions how our cultural connection to the mythology of the wild is revealed in contemporary times. Whetstone’s work interrogates the stereotypes of rural people--ignorance, poverty, and self-destruction--and explores the complicated bond between people and the landscape.
Whetstone’s work has been exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions, including the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Karyn Lovegrove in Los Angeles and Higher Pictures and Wallspace in New York. In 2007 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship his work New Wilderness and his work has been reviewed in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, and Art News, among others. Whetstone is represented by Julie Saul in New York and is currently a Professor of Visual Arts at Princeton University.

Laughing "yoga" event on Wednesday at 5:30 pm in Powell
(5:30 PM - 6:00 PM)
- Attachment 1: Laughing Event Poster
As part of the Wellness Center’s Winter Meltdown, we are leading a recreational laughing event this Wednesday (2/22) at 5:30PM near the info desk on the second floor of Powell. One way to describe this type of thing is as “laughter yoga,” but this bears little resemblance to actual yoga. I’ve planned out a sequence of laughing “exercises” that do not require there to be any joke – the laughter begins voluntarily (like a forced laugh) but then feeds on itself and becomes real as people let themselves be amused by the situation. It's nice 30 minute break on your way to dinner.
There will be silliness, absurdity, comraderie, and the opportunity to be playful in the middle of the week. We will be impossible to ignore in the middle of Powell, and anyone walking by is welcome to join in the fun. I am confident hilarity will ensue.
This is a great way to let loose some stress, get a little endorphin rush, and even burn some extra calories. If you think you could use a little pick-me-up, it would be great to have faculty, staff, and students all share a laugh - bring a friend with you to share the experience!
IEA Visiting Artist: Laura Splan
Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media
Laura Splan of Brooklyn, NY, will be joining the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency the week of February 20th. Laura, who received her MFA at Mills College in Oakland, California, explores intersections of art, science, technology, and craft in her work. In recent work, she has been using her own body to generate bio-data to be used in the production of sculptures and images, a project that has manifested itself in a variety of materials and formats including computerized jacquard woven tapestries and 3D printed sculptures.
Throughout her residency, Laura intends to create computer generated animated weavings from bio-data collected via Arduino microcontrollers. The waveforms generated from this data will be used in AfterEffects and other software with animation, sound, parenting, and expressions to create animated weavings that visualize and embody the experiences from which they were derived.
The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
