  • Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker living in South Florida. Her video works and performances have been premiered at galleries and museums internationally such as MoMA, MoCA:NoMi, BAM, Bass Museum, the Contemporary Museum of Montreal with the Montreal Biennial (2014) and film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, and the New York Film Festival. She was recently featured in Art Papers, ArtNews and Art Forum discussing identity, Internet and her artistic practices and influences.
  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Student Work by Studio

STUDIO 1: Scale/Structure/Circulation

In this “BOOTCAMP” studio, students are introduced to and practice technical drawing (plans and sections) for the first time, through the design and documentation of spatial environments of increasing size and complexity.

 


STUDIO 2: Landscape/Furniture

In this first “site-based” studio, students design two URBAN PARKS “sited” in actual places in Los Angeles. Students design the complete spatial experience including landscape materials such as plants, water, concrete, etc.


STUDIO 3: Interior/Display/Exchange

Students design two commercial or public INTERIORS such as restaurants, stores, museums, health or medical facilities, offices, etc.

 


STUDIO 4: Private/Interior Architecture

Students design residential environments  (CONDOS or APARTMENTS) located within an existing building, and modify portions of the existing structure, facades and/or roof. This aggressive structural component distinguishes “interior architecture” from ”interiors.”

 


STUDIO 5: Public/Urban Architecture

Students design a NEW BUILDING located in an urban context between two, other existing buildings. This unique problem requires students to focus on the two facades (front and back), the roof and interiors, as well as access for pedestrians and cars.

 


STUDIO 6: Building/Landscape

Students design a NEW FREE-STANDING BUILDING with integrated LANDSCAPE components. In this studio, students may choose to more fully develop the building, interiors, and/or landscape, based on their primary interest, or interests.
