This is an opportunity to share your practice/work/research with a small group of faculty and students from different disciplines, and provide one another with feedback, questions, knowledge, and resources. It is intended to be a casual conversation where you can gain perspectives on your practice from outside your own discipline, give insight to others, and find future collaborators.
It is not necessarily a space to present work that you deem 'successful' - it is also intended to be a space where you can talk about work you are struggling with and feel would benefit from outside perspective! Bring questions and thoughts you want to have a conversation about.
Each session will be co-facilitated by a faculty member and one graduate student, occurring for 2 hours during an evening. Each will be located in different buildings around the Temple campuses, coinciding with the department of the faculty member. Dinner will be provided!
Session #3 Architecture
Faculty facilitator: Dr. Seher Erdogan Ford
General topic: Built Spaces (Sensory Structures)
An architectural work creates a phenomenological experience through a complex of sensory impressions intertwining light, sound, texture, and smell. Does your work concern architecture as expanded to include the bodies it affects, the perception of the body in public versus private space, architectural space as a register of memory and identity? Please bring your voice to the conversation.
