Heat, alchemically, is necessary for transformation and movement. The fever dream works to stir, dizzy, purge, remember, excite, warp, symbolize, and merge. This Summer Intensive session will examine surrealist visual techniques used in art and film. Drawing from these techniques, students will create a sequence of paintings, incorporating dreams and memories while experimenting with material application and color.

Over the 2 week intensive, students will learn how to frame images, shoot / develop film, and edit / print images digitally while developing photographic works that explore the idea of the self-portraiture through numerous techniques and technologies from the medium’s past and contemporary space.
