Class activities

The following experiments are in-class activities and group projects.

CLASS COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS
My classes include collaborative process oriented experimentation. Using the classroom as a laboratory is an important part of my teaching and research in working together and the creative process. By supporting the students to interact intensely with each other, they begin to lose their own identity and submerge themselves in the process, creating new juxtapositions, breaking habits and expanding meaning. These are process orientated games rather than made for the final outcome acts.
