ASA 2003

Middle School students participated in Acoustic Ecology and Soundscape Recording. Hearing goes largely under-utilized in contemporary society, frequently being relegated to a mere accentuation of our visual world. In this course, participants will be exposed to a wide range of ideas, techniques and technologies for focusing and sensitizing their aural awareness of the world around them. They will consider how enhancing this aural awareness can alter their relationship to the urban environment and what impact human sound making has on that environment

High School students participated in Viewership, Authorship, Ownership, an investigation of ownership in both literal and conceptual terms. Re-appropriation of media entertainment to build a sense of self, create a media self-portrait, and learn the important lessons that come with borrowing media. In the end your self-portrait may not be your own.
