F is for Food 

During the class in which we broke into groups to devise a socially-engaged art project, my group sought to address the issue of "food deserts" (urban areas in which healthy, fresh food is a rarity) through such ideas as community gardens, healthy cooking classes, and even subversive actions like turning one of those juice cleanse places into a …

F is for Forcing Life into Art 

Most of us understand the term “empathy” as a state which allows us to tune in the affective states of others. However, this term is actually an English translation of the German word “einfühlung” (which literally means “feeling into”). Unlike its English counterpart, this term was originally proposed (at the beginning of the 20th century) …

F is for Pragmatism 

In reading about "Aesthetic Education" in Bishop's "Artificial Hells," I started thinking back to my own arts education - the values of my teachers who encouraged and influenced me, and the values of the society that awaited me after the protective buffer of schooling eroded. In short: my expectations of my artistic life did not …

F is for Field 

1. In Education for a Socially Engaged Art Pablo Helguera references "pedagogy in the expanded field" when talking about the challenging relationship of pedagogy and art practice. When a field such as this is expanded, it's possible that the entire idea of there being a "field" might cease to exist. 2. In my previous post …

F is for Forgiveness 

There are barley any words for these portraits I came across on the New York Times website. Simply, wow. They capture both perpetrators and survivors besides each other  who were in the genocide in Rwanda twenty years ago. The survivors have chosen to forgive their perpetrators despite the unimaginable suffering. It is amazing how capable …

F is for Fair Is Not Always Equal 

The teacher gives glasses to the student who is nearsighted and cannot see anything clearly more than a few feet away before the teacher asks two students to read from the opposite side of the room. On the other hand, if the teacher takes off the student’s glasses who is nearsighted in order to make …

F is for Fourth Wall 

From A Doll’s House to Sleep No More By the end of this month, I will have attended a performance of Shakespeare, Ibsen and Sleep No More. It got me thinking about the use of space and the identification of the audience and artist in very different contexts. Entering into a theatre, at any time …

F is for Fear 

People often say that fear is the enemy, or fear must be abandoned. But we can never truly abandon fear, at least not if we want to survive. Fear must be sifted. We must keep the fear that sustains us and let go of the fear that paralyzes us. Over New Years, I was in …

F is for functional design. 

F is for functional design.  Here in New York City, I have had to adapt to living in a very small studio apartment.  Trying to fit my belongings into this apartment (and stay sane) was extremely difficult.  I believe that one’s home should be a representation of themselves—a place that not only expresses who they …

F is for Framing 

Everyone has a way of framing their thoughts, emotions…- perception is how I would call it. Framing is a way of how we navigate and make sense of our lives in this world. I regard vision as a way of framing of what we see or what we would like to see. I created an artwork …

F is for Futurism 

Futurism is the radical Italian art movement that started directly before WWI, starting in 1909 with a poem published by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in the Parisian newspaper Le Figaro. This poem was the Futurist Manifesto, rejecting the oppressive old culture and striving for a progression of embracing new technology in Italy. The manifesto famously declares …

For those who aren’t familiar with the technique, Freewriting involves writing nonstop for a set amont of time—pen to page, or, in this case, fingers to keys. It’s not so much about th the speed of ideas, but just that you are consistently, always writing something down. Usually, when freewriting on a laptop, you cover …

F is for Forum 

In Habermas’ essay, “The Public Sphere,” Habermas defines the “public sphere” as “a domain of our social life in which such a thing as public opinion can be formed” (143). All citizens have access to the public sphere, and part of it is apparent in all conversations between private people as they come together to …

F is for Fragments 

Abstract: During the previous semester, I wrote the following memoir entitled Fragments of Warmth in my “Teaching of Writing and Nonfiction” course with Kerry McKibbin. This memoir explores the last two weeks of my undergraduate career at Rutgers University—and the amalgamation of emotiveness therein. While I basically ignored the fact that I had to write …

F is for feng shui 

Our classroom is pretty obviously designed for the purpose of fostering learning. It’s probably even supposed to be some sort of emblem of some sort of educational revolution. Everything about it is intentional—the latest technology, smartboards on every wall, modern/21st-century/even futuristic design, writable walls and desks, a green-and-white color scheme I can only assume is …
