This course focuses on the use of autobiography as material for making works of performance, video art, and portraiture. Students will be guided in considering their life experiences as catalysts for creating insightful and articulate artworks. Utilizing the surrounding natural landscape of Ox-Bow, and a spirit of directness in production, participants will create their own short form projects for in-class discussion and a final public presentation. During the course we will look at precedents for this strategy in the histories of still and moving images, performance, and writing from the 1960s to the present
